SAGINAW, Mich., Sept. 3 (UPI) -- A Michigan man accused of trying to steal a bathtub from a vacant house pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor larceny charge.

Cedric Jones, 49, of Buena Vista Township, was accused of trying to steal the tub from an empty home in Saginaw. He pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor larceny from a vacant building charge Thursday in exchange for prosecutors dropping a felony larceny from a building charge, The Saginaw News reported Tuesday.

The misdemeanor charge carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail.

Police said officers were called the home by a woman who reported two men entering an abandoned house. Officers arrived to find Jones with the tub in the garage. A second man at the home fled when officers arrived, police said.

Jones told police he had planned to sell the tub at a scrap yard for about $20.
