Entering his employer's house and stealing items has landed one man facing prison time.

Reese Kizer, 27, pleaded guilty on Monday to an October 2015 charge of felony theft.

Kizer's employer noticed that items had started showing up missing, like jewelry, so he installed several hidden cameras.

The cameras showed Kizer entering through the dog door with a woman.

It also showed Kizer wearing gloves and wiping down the surfaces.

He is facing up to five years and up to a $10,000 fine.
