HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) -- A Churchville man will spend five years in prison after pleading guilty to credit card fraud, identity theft and related charges.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Michael Andrew Webb and another man broke into two vehicles in Harrisonburg and stole credit cards in October 2012. The credit cards were used to make purchases online and at several Wal-Mart stores.

The Daily News-Record ( ) reports that Webb pleaded guilty on Friday to 15 felony counts in Rockingham County Circuit Court.

Judge Bruce Albertson sentenced Webb to 45 years in prison and then suspended all but five years of the term.

Co-defendant Joshua Russell Rankin of Staunton pleaded guilty to similar charges last month. He received a 50-year sentence with all but one year of the term suspended.
