PITTSBURGH - A Georgia man has been sentenced in federal court to two years’ probation with six months’ home detention on his conviction of interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle, United States Attorney Scott W. Brady announced today.

United States District Judge David S. Cercone imposed the sentence on Tom Smith, 55, of Atlanta, Georgia.

According to information presented to the court, on or about July 1, 2015, Smith transported a stolen Range Rover Sport, valued at $74,000, from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania across state lines into the State of West Virginia.
