Kansas Man Pleads Guilty to Airport Burglaries

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas man has pleaded guilty to burglarizing airports in four states.

Acting U.S. Attorney Marietta Parker announced Friday that Michael S. Wagner has pleaded guilty to four counts of interstate transportation of stolen property, two counts of wire fraud and two counts of mail fraud.

Prosecutors allege the 27-year-old Hutchinson man stole items including laptop computers and cameras from small airports in Kansas, Colorado, Texas and Oklahoma.

Investigators determined some of the stolen merchandise was sold on eBay, and buyers paid by mailing money through the U.S. Postal Service.

He faces up to 120 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $2 million.

Sentencing has been set for May 29.

Twenty-seven-year-old Chauncey Gaynor of Wichita is awaiting trial in the case.
