Golf Course Thief Gets Prison

(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)–A man who stole expensive jewelry at golf courses and sold it at trade shows and pawn shops has been sentenced to two years in prison by a Las Vegas federal judge.

The U.S. Attorneys office says that Jeffrey Cochran will also pay more than $300,000 in restitution.

Cochran, 47, pleaded guilty earlier this summer to two counts of possession and sale of stolen goods.

He was accused of stealing expensive jewelry, including Rolex and Tag Heuer watches from individuals at golf courses in other states and transporting it to Las Vegas for sale at jewelry and pawn stores. Prosecutors say he also stole from individuals at golf courses here and sold the bounty out of state. 

The thefts occurred from September 2010 to March of 2012.
