The man who raided rocker Jon Bon Jovi's home has been sentenced to serve five years in prison.

Nicholas Tracy illegally entered a string of houses in New Jersey, including the It's My Life hitmaker's mansion, during a three-day period in spring, 2011, making off with jewellery and other goods, totalling $300,000.

Last month the 22 year old pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary and theft at the State Superior Court in Freehold, and on Friday Judge Ronald L. Reisner handed down the sentence, according to local news site NJ.com.

It is not known what items were swiped from Bon Jovi's residence, however some of the property has since been recovered.
