Backdoor Burglar/Fashion Bandit Sentenced

Smith County's "backdoor burglar" is sentenced to life in state prison. Thirty-four-year-old Lawrence Donell Madlock had pleaded guilty to seven charges of aggravated robbery with a shotgun. Authorities say Madlock burglarized numerous homes in Tyler and Smith County by breaking through the back doors. Also known as the "fashion bandit", Madlock was seen wearing a purple dress and Hawaiian blouse when he robbed convenience stores. Madlock will serve his new life sentence at the same time as the life sentence he received last Feb.
