A California man who raided Gardnerville mailboxes and altered checks May 23-26, 2020, was sentenced to 36-90 months in prison on Tuesday.
Anthony Joseph Castro, 26, admitted to three felony counts of uttering a forged instrument.
Castro received three consecutive 12-30-month sentences. When he gets out of prison, he owes $2,139.58 in restitution to the two banks that accepted the checks.
Castro brought $800 with him to start the restitution payments.
District Judge Tod Young listed Castro’s felony offenses, including several theft related felonies.
“You cannot go through life being a thief,” Young said.
