CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey man who took part in a scheme to steal checks from industrial-park mailboxes and cash them has been sentenced to more than eight years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say Michael Ingalls Jr. of Camden was also ordered to pay $361,955 in restitution and will have to serve five years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

The 36-year-old Ingalls had pleaded guilty last May to conspiracy to commit bank fraud and possessing stolen mail. He received a 100-month federal prison sentence on Tuesday.

Authorities have said Ingalls was part of a group that cashed or attempted to cash more than 100 stolen and altered business checks worth more than $600,000. The scheme resulted in a total loss of more than $300,000 to the victim banks.
