A lot of time in prison for breaking into cars. A man and a woman with no fixed address have been sentenced on federal charges. Prosecutors say 39-year-old Hataria Whitehead and his 21-year-old girlfriend, Stephanie Kantz, broke into cars up and down the East Coast and stole credit cards and checks. They went after targets in gyms, churches, daycare centers and funeral homes. Kantz would wear wigs and makeup to change her appearance to look more like the victims in the stolen IDs. Kantz was sentenced to two years in prison, and Whitehead has been sent away for almost eight years. They were tried in Harrisonburg federal court after being caught breaking into cars and stealing the property of hikers (pictured) in Shenandoah National Park.
