WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita maintenance technician has been sent to federal prison for stealing equipment from two Wichita companies where he worked.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for Kansas says 45-year-old Mark A. Lankford was sentenced Monday to 16 months. He pleaded guilty in December to two counts of wire fraud after stealing equipment from Spirit Aerosystems and Fiber Glass Systems. Prosecutors say he made more than $150,000 selling the stolen equipment.

Lankford worked for Spirit Aerosystems in Wichita from October 2010 to September 2011. Prosecutors say he stole computer parts and other items from Spirit worth about $466,000. He's also stole about $41,000 worth of equipment from Fiber Glass Systems between March 2008 and October 2010.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten plans to hold a separate hearing over restitution.
