SALISBURY, Md.- A man operating a home improvement company was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday after being convicted by a Wicomico County Circuit Court jury of theft and theft scheme.

Prosecutors said 41-year-old David Suire, 41, of Wicomico County, was operating a home improvement company when he was hired by two Hebron women from whom he stole two checks during the course of completing home improvements.

In April 2013, Suire filled out the dollar amount on the checks and made his girlfriend the payee, causing her to ultimately cash the checks, prosecutors said. The total amount of this theft was $1,534, court documents show.

On Monday, Suire was convicted of theft scheme of an amount between $1,000 and $10,000; theft $1,000 to $10,000; and theft less than $1,000.

After the jury returned their verdict, Suire was sentenced to 10 years in the custody of the Division of Corrections.

The presiding judge made this sentence consecutive to any sentence Suire is now serving. Prosecutors noted that Suire had a major record under the sentencing guidelines and was previously convicted in Wicomico County of forgery and counterfeit private documents and issuing false documents on Oct. 1, 2013, in connection with another case and of theft less than $1,000 on Nov. 13, 2013, in another case. Suire previously received 20 years in prison for those crimes, prosecutors said.
