ROCHESTER, Minn. – A man charged with six felonies reaches a plea deal with prosecutors.

Souleysi Brandon Singharath, 19 of Rochester, was accused of burglarizing three Rochester homes between February 7 and February 8. Police say he stole electronics, jewelry, cash, and personal information. He was also arrested in July for threatening people at the Smoke Shop on Elton Hill Drive with a knife. Officers say he was wearing a bulletproof vest at the time that had been stolen from a police car while it was being repaired.

On Friday, Singharath pleaded guilty to 2nd degree burglary and threats of violence. Two other counts of 2nd degree burglary, illegal possession of a firearm, commission of a crime while wearing a bulletproof vest, and a misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property were dismissed.

A sentencing hearing is set for December 12.
