WASHINGTON, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A Washington burglar who posted a picture of himself to the victim's Facebook page pleaded guilty to second-degree burglary.

Rodney Knight Jr., 19, who was identified by police from a photo he posted to the Facebook page of victim Marc Fisher's son during the crime, pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree burglary in addition to an unrelated count of carrying a pistol without a license, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Police said Knight took a picture of himself wearing a coat belonging to Knight, an editor for the Post, and holding up cash apparently taken from Knight's home.

Investigators said Knight took the coat, $400 cash and two laptop computers in the December break-in.

Knight is scheduled to be sentenced May 4.
