A US couple who boasted on a TV show they made as much as $3,500 (£2,318) a week by selling shoplifted toys online have been sentenced to prison terms.

Matthew Eaton, 34, got 27 months in jail. His wife Laura Eaton, 27, was sentenced to one year.

The couple from southern California pleaded guilty to conspiracy to transport stolen goods.

The pair were arrested last September - nearly a year after an appearance on the Dr Phil television show.

The couple from San Marcos, north of San Diego, were sentenced by a district judge on Monday.

Assistant US Attorney Nicole Acton Jones had earlier said the couple made at least $100,000 from June 2007 to March 2009 by stealing Lego toy kits, transporting them across state lines and selling them on eBay and other online auction sites, the San Diego 6 website reported.
