(WICHITA, Kan.) — Two Wichita men have pleaded guilty to wire fraud charges in connection with stolen goods sold on Craigslist.
Twenty-three year old Jordan Smith Wichita, pleaded guilty to two counts of wire fraud.
Co-defendant 21-year-old Thomas Griffin, Jr. pleaded guilty to one count of aiding and abetting wire fraud.
In their pleas, they admitted 36 people were victims and more than $115,964 worth of personal property was stolen in a series of burglaries Smith committed in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
Smith used the Internet to list the stolen property for sale on Craigslist.
The stolen goods included building materials and supplies, machinery, appliances, electronics, jewelry, motor bikes and other items.
Griffin admitted he allowed Smith to use his telephone number as a point of contact for persons interesting in buying the property Smith advertised.
Griffin knew that property Smith was selling was stolen.
Sentencing is set for Oct. 15.
