ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A pair of burglars who broke into 76 homes in four counties were sentenced Monday in Lehigh County Court.

Patrick Quinn of Lower Saucon Township was sentenced to 9-20 years and Kelly Cunningham of Hellertown was sentenced to 8-18 years.

Both also must do four years of probation and were ordered to make restitution totaling $155,000.

Court records indicate the two pleaded guilty in May to a number of the crimes as part of a plea deal.

The pair burglarized vacant homes that were for sale.

Police called it a major crime spree.

Investigators said the crimes started Nov. 24, 2012, and went on until May 23, 2013, and the couple broke into the homes between the hours of 11:45 p.m. and 5 a.m.
