ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A Stafford man has pleaded guilty to stealing nearly $100,000 worth of military equipment used to support the Marine One helicopter fleet that transports the president.

Thirty-four-year-old Branden Baker admitted Tuesday in federal court in Alexandria that he stole more than 50 image intensifiers and other night-vision equipment from Marine Helicopter Squadron One, which is headquartered at Marine Corps Base Quantico. He sold the stolen equipment on eBay. The thefts occurred from 2013 through 2015.

Baker faces up to 10 years in prison for theft of government property when he is sentenced in August.

The plea agreement also requires Baker to pay $94,000 in restitution.
