A 39-year-old Minneapolis man has been sentenced to more than two years in prison for stealing wallets from metro area gym locker rooms, the Hennepin County attorney’s office said Friday.
Hennepin County District Judge William H. Koch sentenced Ronald Lee Guy to 26 months in prison for breaking into gym lockers at several Life Time Fitness and LA Fitness gyms, the attorney’s office said. Guy had pleaded guilty in March to 12 counts of financial transaction fraud.
According to the criminal complaint, between October 2015 and February 2016, Guy broke into fitness club lockers in Eden Prairie, Plymouth, Bloomington, Hopkins, Maple Grove, Champlin and Woodbury.
He stole the wallets of 12 people while they were using the gym, then made fraudulent charges to their credit cards at several retail stores, the attorney’s office said.
In addition to sentencing him to prison, the judge ordered Guy to pay $12,000 in restitution.
