He’s facing three counts of third-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree larceny, two counts of conspiracy to commit first-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit third-degree burglary, three counts of credit card theft, illegal use of a credit card, sixth-degree larceny and third-degree larceny.
