After years of committing crimes, Jason Matthew Davis, 30, of Newton will spend no less than 51 months in prison.
Davis was convicted of felony possession of stolen goods and habitual felon status on Wednesday in Catawba County Criminal Superior Court.
This month marks the 50th anniversary of Lake Norman’s construction.
The creation of the lake submerged the 70-person community of Long Island, N.C., the East Monbo Mill, 23 miles worth of roads and several other landmarks.
And they are all still there, under the water, half a century later.
