UPSHUR COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas man has been sentenced to life in prison after Sheriff's investigators and prosecutors say he committing at least 200 burglaries.

Guy Edward Brannon, 50, confessed to 80 burglaries in Upshur County. During the investigation into these burglaries, authorities were able, with Brannon's help, to recover many stolen items and return them to the owners. Brannon admitted to stealing many of the items and trading them for drugs. As a result, others were arrested for Possession of Stolen Firearms and property.

It was also during the investigation that law enforcement learned Brannon had committed other burglaries in counties that include Harrison, Gregg, Rusk, Marion, Cass, Wood, Camp, Smith and Van Zandt.

"As a Prosecutor, this is by far the most burglaries I have ever prosecuted one person for committing," said prosecutor, Billy W. Bird. "Based on Brannon's extensive criminal history he was indicted and prosecuted as a Habitual Felon. This sentence will ensure the public is safer this holiday season and the kids Christmas presents aren't subject to being stolen by this felon."
