Lindahl appeared in Douglas County District Court on Tuesday with attorney Maria Pence.
While the counts are the lowest level of felony, District Judge Tod Young confirmed with Pence and prosecutor Rick Casper that there’s no requirement to give him probation at his March 19 sentencing.
Lindahl was found with a half dozen credit cards with other people’s names on them. He was spotted on doorbell footage walking up to one vehicle, finding it locked and then entering another.
Lindahl has served three prison sentences out of Douglas and Carson City and was last paroled in June 2023. A 16-72 month sentence for burglary out of the capital expired in December.
Lindahl was sentenced to prison in 2020 for attempting to pry open slot machines with a tire iron at a Stateline casino in 2019.
