BUCKS COUNTY -- A Trenton man who took part in a burglary and robbery ring in Pennsylvania and New Jersey will spend as much as 15 years in prison, according to a release from the Bucks County District Attorney.
Christopher Upshur, 27, will serve seven and a half to 15 years in a Pennsylvania state prison, authorities said.Christopher UpshurBucks County District Attorney
Upshur took part in at least five residential burglaries and one home-invasion robbery between July and September 2012 in Lower Makefield, Middletown and Upper Makefield Townships, Pa., authorities said.
Upshur also took part in a Toms River home invasion in October 2012, authorities said.
Police executed a search warrant and discovered property from that incident at Upshur's Trenton home.
Upshur, who pleaded guilty on Nov. 29, 2016, told the court he joined the group, allegedly led by his step-father, because he needed money for bills, medical expenses and child support.
He was also ordered to pay $84,000 in restitution to the five Bucks County victims.
