A 57-year-old “career criminal” is heading to prison and must pay nearly $5 million in restitution after pleading guilty to a string of burglaries and a home invasion in Greenwich.

New York City resident Jerome Shaw has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to several charges following a joint investigation by the Greenwich Police Department and FBI into a near five-year crime spree that concluded in 2015.

Shaw, of the Inwood neighborhood in Manhattan, pleaded guilty earlier this year to charges that include conspiracy to commit interstate transportation of stolen property, interstate transportation of stolen property, receipt and sale of stolen goods. He must also make a restitution of $4.7 million to his victims.

The arrest and conviction came following an extensive investigation that included several interviews, search warrants, and surveillance operations, police noted.

The investigation stemmed from offenses in Greenwich between 2011 and 2015 that included a home invasion, 15 burglaries, and a vehicle theft.
