IRON MOUNTAIN - A Commonwealth, Wis. man has pleaded guilty in Dickinson County Court to theft charges that stem from an alleged burglary spree though several counties.

Dickinson County Prosecutor Stephanie Brule said that 25-year-old Johnathon Mark Plonty pleaded to two felony counts of larceny in a building and one felony count of larceny of a firearm.

He is scheduled for sentencing on Feb. 5, she added.

In Florence County, Plonty still faces five felony counts of burglary to a building or dwelling, one felony count of concealing stolen property, three misdemeanor counts of concealing stolen property, and one misdemeanor count of possession of a controlled substance.

He is scheduled for a final pre-trial on those charges on Jan. 22.

Also, in Marinette County, Plonty faces one felony count of burglary to a building or dwelling and one misdemeanor count of theft of movable property.

He is scheduled for a status conference on those charges on Dec. 14.

According to the criminal complaints in the case, Plonty allegedly broke into and stole from several different storage units in Iron Mountain, Kingsford, Quinnesec, Florence, and Niagara; residences in Florence County; and the House of Yesteryear museum in Breitung Township.

The alleged thefts occurred between the summer of 2011 and May 2012.
