TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A Pennsylvania man is headed to prison for his role in a string of commercial burglaries in New Jersey and other nearby states.

Federal prosecutors say Jose Medina received a 30-month sentence Monday. He also will have to serve two years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

The 40-year-old Lancaster man had pleaded guilty in July to charges of conspiracy to transport stolen goods in interstate commerce and transporting those items across state lines. He also forfeited $487,364 in stolen proceeds.

Prosecutors say Medina conspired with his younger brother and other people to steal money by burglarizing stores in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and elsewhere and take the stolen money across state lines.

The conspiracy involved at least 22 burglaries and caused over $480,000 in losses.
