TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man has admitted his role in transporting goods stolen through a string of commercial burglaries in New Jersey.

Federal prosecutors say 37-year-old Eliezer Medina pleaded guilty Monday to conspiracy to transport stolen goods in interstate commerce. The Lancaster County man faces a five-year prison term when he’s sentenced Oct. 22, and he will have to pay $625,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say that between November 2013 and August 2014, Medina and his older brother conspired to steal money by burglarizing stores in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere and take the stolen money across state lines.

Eliezer Medina admitted burglarizing at least three stores in New Jersey.

Medina’s 38-year-old brother, Jose Medina, remains charged with conspiracy to transport stolen goods in interstate commerce.
