A Casper man pleaded guilty to two counts of burglary Wednesday morning for breaking into several cars at Washington Park in May.

Brandtly Bedsaul, 19, was caught breaking into the cars on May 24. When officers arrived, he attempted to run before an officer tackled him.

Bedsaul was carrying a woman’s purse, two wallets and other items he had taken from the vehicles, according to court documents. He refused to answer questions about who he was and what he was doing. Officers believed he was drunk at the time, the documents state.

As part of the plea deal, prosecutors dismissed a charge of interfering with a police officer. He will be sentenced later.

Bedsaul was being held Wednesday on a $1 million bond for separate charges. While out on bail for the burglary charges, Bedsaul was arrested on suspicion of raping and attempting to murder a young girl in October. He has not entered a plea in that case.
