Michigan Couch Thief Sentenced To 5-22 Years

Posted: Updated:

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A Kent County judge has sentenced a man to five to 22 years in prison for stealing what police say is more than $41,000 worth of items from home furnishing stores.

41-year-old Michael McClerin was sentenced Thursday. He pleaded guilty in June to receiving and concealing stolen property worth over $20,000. He also pleaded guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Investigators say McClerin stole a leather couch worth more than $6,500 from Gorman's Home Furnishings Store on March 3. They say he returned six days later to steal the matching cushions and a rug.

Investigators later discovered a storage unit where they say McClerin put stolen items. They haven't recovered the couch or rug.

McClerin has to pay $1,000 in restitution.
