A Bakersfield man will spend more than two years behind bars after being sentenced Tuesday by a federal judge for conspiracy to posess stolen mail and unlawful possession of credit and debit cards.

Federal prosecutors argued, 37-year-old Jason Leroy Geiser, conspired to steal mail and use stolen credit cards between October 2016 and March 2017. Geiser accepted a plea deal to the charges in October of 2017.

 A U.S. District Court judge in Fresno sentenced Geiser to two years and four months in prison.

Geiser was arrested in March 2017 by Bakersfield police officers and in a search of his vehicle, officers found a large stash of mail and 64 stolen or unauthorized credit and debit cards according to prosecutors.

Geiser was also fined $85,000.
