Miller, 46, was sentenced Nov. 25, 2014, to 11 years in prison after pleading guilty to interstate transportation of stolen goods and money laundering for stealing at least $1 million worth of copper wire from Elkhart-based Heartland RV and selling it to Sustainable Recycling Inc., a Dowagiac, Mich. scrap metal dealer.
