By From staff reports

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A South Charleston man was sentenced in Greenbrier County to prison for thefts involving The Greenbrier Classic PGA golf tournament, but will be allowed to serve his time on home confinement. 

Steven VanHorn, 24, pleaded guilty to two of the five criminal charges against him. Those thefts occurred in 2011 and 2012. Three of the charges were dismissed in exchange for his plea.

On June 18 he was sentenced to one to 10 years for grand larceny and one to 10 years for fraudulent schemes, to be served consecutively.

The judge allowed VanHorn to serve those sentences on home confinement in Kanawha County. 

VanHorn was arrested and indicted by a Greenbrier Grand Jury in October for allegedly stealing merchandise and equipment from the resort.

According to the criminal complaint filed in the case, police said stole a printer valued at nearly $10,000, then produced fake credentials and passes for the PGA golf tournament. He was also accused of stealing clothing and other Classic merchandise.
