Man receives 51-month sentence

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A Spokane man whose lawn was littered with more than $200,000 in stolen property will spend the next 51 months behind bars.

38-year-old Troy Lee Baumgardner pleaded guilty to burglary and theft charges stemming from at least three break-ins at businesses between May and August 2012.

The Spokesman-Review reported that a judge sentenced him on Wednesday.

Baumgardner was arrested at a North Spokane apartment in September 2012. Spokane County sheriff's deputies found stereo equipment, clothing and electronics taken in the burglaries that investigators carted out and sorted on the lawn of the building.
