SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - A judge sentenced a Sherman man Monday to 20 years in prison for six felonies.

Donavon Carroll, 50, was sentenced for theft of property over $300,000, possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, ecading arrest with a vehicle and burglary of a habitation. He was also sentenced for bail jumping/failure to appear and state charges of possession.

Authorities said in April 2016 Carroll arranged the sale of brand new Cummins tractor-trailer motors he knew to be stolen out of Dallas County. The market value of the motors is more than $400,000. Authorities said Carroll planned to sell the motors in Grayson County.

In September 2018, troopers said Carroll led them on an eight-mile pursuit on a motorcycle through Grayson County, reaching speeds over 90 miles per hour. They said the chase began after they attempted to pull him over for running a red light.

Authorities said they discovered meth and stolen property during a search of Carroll's home in May 2019. The stolen property, a vase worth around $30,000 and a watch, was in plain view inside the home.

Local police officers observed Carroll selling methamphetamine prior to the search.
