ALAMOGORDO, N.M. (AP) - A man convicted of eight felony charges for his involvement in two criminal cases in Alamogordo has been sentenced to 16 years in prison.


Prosecutors say 38-year-old Michael Cook was sentenced Monday.

He was convicted of non-residential burglary and possession of a controlled substance in a 2017 case.

Cook was accused of breaking into a storage shed and stealing.

Authorities found the items in his truck along with 2 grams of methamphetamine.

In March 2018, Alamogordo police were called about a house being broken into and severely damaged and a car among many missing items.

A cellphone was found and authorities discovered Cook was the owner.

Cook pleaded guilty or no contest to residential burglary, receiving stolen property, larceny and other charges.
