ADRIAN, Mich. (AP) -- An Ohio man convicted of taking part in so many business break-ins a judge called the number "overwhelming" has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
Lenawee County Circuit Judge Margaret M.S. Noe sentenced 23-year-old Luiz Alberto Florez on Friday for the series of break-ins during 2009 and 2010. She told him the list of burglaries, including one in which an ATM was taken from a sports bar, was "absolutely overwhelming."
The Daily Telegram reports that the Toledo man pleaded guilty in February to three counts of breaking and entering and one count of second-degree home invasion.
Noe said the break-ins at more than a dozen businesses that Florez and his companions took part in destroyed the sense of security the owners and managers of those businesses once had.
