The U.S. Attorney's Office in Arizona says a California man has been sentenced to five years and 10 months in federal prison for a robbery spree involving high-end jewelry and handbags worth more than $130,000.

Office spokesman Cosme Lopez said Tuesday that U.S. District Judge Raner C. Collins issued the sentence on Monday for 50-year-old Mitchell Ray Finley of Fresno.
    
Lopez says that during a string of heists in May 2016 Finely and three other men stole a diamond solitaire ring from a Tucson jewelry store, several designer handbags from a Scottsdale department store and some high-end watches from a Glendale shop.
    
The Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Pima County Sheriff's Office as well as police departments in Scottsdale, Glendale and Fresno helped prosecute the case.
