LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Warren County judge has sentenced a Xenia man to eight years in prison for his role in a theft spree last summer.

A jury on Tuesday convicted Justin Noble, 20, of 14 charges. The charges include grand theft of a motor vehicle, theft of drugs and other offenses.

Noble and an accomplice last July 17 entered Warren County in a stolen vehicle to go car-hopping. They entered numerous vehicles in Blanchester and Morrow. They stole various items ranging from laptops, GPS devices, credit cards and other items. Noble would enter locked and unlocked vehicles to look for the items.

The following day Noble returned to Warren County in the Waynesville area. That's where he continued car-hopping, taking credit cards and the prescription medication of a cancer patient. During his last offense, Noble took a motor vehicle.

Judge James Flannery's sentence of Noble will run consecutive to the 11.5-year sentence he is currently serving for similar offenses he committed in Clinton and Logan counties.

Flannery sentenced Noble immediately after the verdict.
