Date posted - December 4, 2012

Orange City, Iowa — A Sioux City man has been sentenced to a 10-year prison term after he burglarized an Orange City store.

Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says 19-year-old Luis Antonio Giron of Sioux City was sentenced on Monday, (12/3) in Sioux County District Court for the crime of Burglary in the Third Degree, a Class D Felony.

In the early morning hours of March 13, 2012, someone broke into Van Maanen’s Radio Shack in Orange City. The following morning employees discovered that the back door of the business had been kicked in and the surveillance system had been stolen. The amount of stolen merchandise (primarily electronics) and damage to the business totaled over $10,000.

The Orange City Police Department, the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office, and the Sioux City Police Department conducted a joint investigation, which resulted in the arrest of Giron in Sioux City on May 20, 2012. At the time of his arrest, Giron was on probation in Woodbury County, for Willful Injury and Criminal Gang Participation. As a result of his guilty plea to Burglary in the Third Degree in Sioux County on November 5th of this year, his probation in Woodbury County was revoked and a five-year prison term was imposed in the Woodbury County matter.

Sentencing was held on Monday, (12/3) in the Sioux County matter. Giron was sentenced to five years in prison on the Sioux County burglary charge. This sentence will run consecutively with his prison sentence imposed out of Woodbury County, for a total indeterminate prison term not to exceed ten years. Giron was also ordered to pay restitution to the victim, Van Maanen’s Radio Shack.
