Washington D.C.– A man who posted pictures of the loot he stole on the victim’s Facebook page has pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary in D.C. Superior Court on Tuesday. Rodney Knight also pleaded guilty to carrying a pistol without a license.
Knight broke in to the Northwest home of Washington Post writer Marc Fisher in December, police said. He helped himself to a number of items, including two laptop computers, a new winter coat and about $400 in cash.
Before leaving the scene of the crime, he put on the winter coat and posed with the cash for a photo he took of himself. He then posted his “loot” photo on Fisher’s son’s Facebook page, the writer said.
