GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A man who has pleaded guilty to stealing about $16,000 worth of items from a former Wyoming law enforcement officer's house told a judge he picked the house to steal from because a porch light was on and it looked like nobody was home.

The News Record reported ( ) Monday that 39-year-old Sean E. Kinion accepted a plea agreement in which prosecutors will recommend a prison sentence of eight to 10 years in exchange for not filing felony theft charges against him. He pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary.

Kinion says it only took him about 10-15 minutes to steal 150 items from the house in July 2015. He says he pawned most of it afterward.

Kinion is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 18.
