SAN ANTONIO – A man has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for a major theft that happened at the historic Red Berry Mansion a few years ago.

Kenneth McGraw Jr. originally agreed to a plea deal in October and was facing 15 years in prison, but he failed to show up for his sentencing hearing, removed his GPS monitor and disappeared.

McGraw was later arrested on drug charges and brought back to Bexar County.

The thefts at the Red Berry Mansion on the city's East Side were reported in late 2014 and early 2015. City workers estimated the property loss at tens of thousands of dollars.

Police learned in March 2015 that McGraw and his father, Kenneth McGraw Sr., were involved in the heist and arrested them.

Some of the property from the mansion was recovered, but some paintings and other artifacts are still missing.

The older McGraw is awaiting trial.
