A plumber in St. Joseph has learned his punishment for stealing parts of vehicles in 11 different counties.

He worked as plumber, and even used his company's truck to commit the crime. He and another man then sold the parts at scrap yards.

According to our reporting partners at The Herald Palladium, he was sentenced Wednesday to at least 14 months in prison.
