PHOENIX (AP) - A transient who pleaded guilty to numerous charges in the thefts of luxury cars from Phoenix health clubs last year has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.

A Maricopa County Superior Court spokesman says 46-year-old Richard Cory Barker was sentenced Thursday by Judge Joseph Welty.

Phoenix police believe Barker followed the victims into two workout facilities, broke into their lockers as they worked out and removed personal property including car keys.

Police say Barker sold one of the vehicles for $8,900 after advertising it online and giving the buyer a fake title.

Undercover officers posed as potential buyers for one of the stolen vehicles and arrested Barker.

He pleaded guilty to charges that included theft of means of transportation, forgery and trafficking in stolen property.
