Brian Thomas McCarthy is scheduled for sentencing in Washington County District Court on April 4 and could face up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. 

McCarthy was originally charged with third-degree burglary and receiving stolen property, but Judge Tad Jude dismissed the latter charge in exchange for his guilty plea.

, Woodbury Police Cmdr. Jay Alberio told Patch that authorities suspected McCarthy of breaking into a detached garage in Woodbury and vehicles in Woodbury, Oakdale, Maplewood, Newport and St. Paul.   

McCarthy's criminal record shows convictions for third-degree burglary in November 2008, second-degree assault in January 2009, receiving stolen property in April 2009 and fifth-degree assault in August 2011.
