HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a former burglary ring member who allegedly tried to have two of his co-defendants killed has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

William “Christopher” Collins received a four-year term for receiving stolen property and a consecutive eight-year sentence for witness tampering that authorities say stems from the alleged murder plot.

Bergen County prosecutors say that while the 42-year-old Teaneck man was in jail, he tried to hire someone to kill two other alleged members of the now-defunct “James Bond Gang.” But the plot was uncovered with the help of an informant.

Authorities say the burglary ring operated for several years and targeted luxury homes throughout the region. The ring got its name due to its use of technology.

Authorities say Collins now recruits juveniles to commit break-ins.
