An Ambridge man who stole credit card account information to defraud retailers out of more than $249,000 in merchandise will spend three years in prison, a federal judge ruled today.

Calvin Smith, 43, pleaded guilty in January 2012 to conspiring with others to steal account information from holders of American Express and Discover cards and buy items at stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio between December 2010 and June 2011.

U.S. District Judge Arthur Schwab also sentenced Smith to three years of probation and ordered him to pay restitution.
