Man Admits To Golf Course Thefts

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a 47-year-old Las Vegas man has pleaded guilty to stealing more than $300,000 worth of expensive jewelry from people at golf courses in several states and moving it across state lines to sell at trade shows, jewelry stores and pawn shops.

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden says Jeffrey Cochran pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas to two counts of possession and sale of stolen goods.

Cochran remained free pending sentencing Oct. 18. He could face to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine on each count.

Cochran admitted stealing jewelry items from about September 2010 to March 2012 and selling them in Nevada and other states.

Documents show Cochran agreed to restitution and the forfeiture of money that he made from the sales.
