 BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) -- A Roundup-area man has pleaded guilty to looting a
house south of Roundup in June after its occupants left because of a wildfire in
the Bull Mountains.
   The Billings Gazette reports 27-year-old Eric Aafedt recently pleaded guilty to
 burglary and theft by common scheme during a hearing in District Court in Musselshell
 County. Under a plea agreement, prosecutors agreed to seek a five year suspended
 sentence and restitution.
   Aafedt acknowledged entering a house on June 28. Prosecutors said he took jewelry,
 clothing, knives, a money clip with a silver coin, a German eagle statue, a portable
 DVD player and a bank credit card. Investigators determined the jewelry
had been pawned in Billings and Aafedt had used the stolen credit card. He
was arrested in Billings in early July.
