The Washington, DC, man linked to a string of office suite burglaries in Rockville and Bethesda will be sentenced Wednesday in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

Andre Antonio Henry, 30, was charged with eight burglaries—he pleaded guilty to three—and numerous counts of credit card theft and identity fraud, according to Ramón V. Korionoff, a spokesman for the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Henry’s two-month spree began at the end of January, Korionoff said. He reportedly used a flat-head screwdriver to break in the offices and took electronics and credit cards once inside.

But a trail of clues was left in his wake—more than just fingerprints, prosecutors said.

Prosecutors claim that Henry left his own documents for a separate court appointment at one of the crime scenes.

Prosecutors also claim there’s other evidence: grainy surveillance video of one of the break-ins and reports that Henry was later seen using the victim’s credit card at a local mall.

Henry was arrested May 9 in Prince George’s County, Patch has reported
