'Magnum, P.I.' director convicted of theft in Va.

An English baron and former television director has been convicted of petit larceny in connection with the theft of items from an antique store, but he won’t serve any jail time.

Raymond DeVere-Austin, of Albemarle County, was convicted of taking cast-iron statues of Humpty Dumpty, a dog and a horse head from the Antiquer’s Mall in Ruckersville in October.

Greene County court records show that he was given a suspended six-month jail sentence Wednesday and must pay a $1,000 fine.

Neither DeVere-Austin nor his lawyer, David Thomas, returned calls seeking comment.

The 76-year-old directed “Hawaii Five-O,” ’’Magnum, P.I.” and other shows. He is a baron by marriage to Wendy Devere-Austin.

Man, if I was 76 years-old, I'd probably start stealing stuff too.
