Multimillion-dollar theft ring member gets 7 years in prison

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) A member of a theft ring that committed more than 180 burglaries and eluded police in dozens of car chases in Connecticut and New York has been sentenced to more than seven years in prison. Josepher Cartagena, of the Bronx in New York City, appeared before a federal judge in Hartford, Connecticut, on Tuesday. He pleaded guilty in February to possession of stolen property. Four other people were charged. Prosecutors say the thieves netted more than $4 million in stolen property, including vehicles, cell phones and even ATM machines, from June 2020 to January 2021. Cartagena said in court documents that he regretted his actions.
