NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A New York man has been sentenced to prison for selling jewelry that was stolen from a home in Connecticut.
Connecticut U.S. Attorney Deirdre Daly announced Wednesday that 33-year-old Miguel Mead, of Schenectady, New York, was sentenced to 41 months in prison followed by three years of probation.
Mead pleaded guilty in October to sale or receipt of stolen goods.
Prosecutors say Mead and a group of friends committed numerous residential burglaries in Connecticut and other states along the east coast between February 2012 and November 2013. They’re accused of stealing money, jewelry and firearms.
Prosecutors say Mead’s group stole about 250 pieces of jewelry valued at more than $2.5 million from a Salisbury home in February 2012. Mead then sold several pieces to a business in North Carolina.
