SIOUX CITY -- A Sioux City man pleaded guilty Wednesday to his role in a series of burglaries in Sioux City's Leeds neighborhood.

Jeremy Mahaney, 19, entered his pleas in Woodbury County District Court to three counts of second-degree burglary. Sentencing was set for March 29.

Mahaney pleaded guilty to participating in an Aug. 3 burglary at a home in the 4500 block of Perry Way. The homeowner confronted two intruders and fought with one of them before the suspects fled the house. A vehicle used in the burglary was located a short distance away, and stolen items were found in the grass next to it.

According to court documents, Mahaney took the keys to the vehicle from his mother, whose employer owned the vehicle.

During the investigation, police linked Mahaney, Joseph Tapia and Henry Deleon to break-ins at homes in the 3900 block of Madison Street and the 3900 block of Monroe Street.

Tapia, 18, of Sioux City, was sentenced in December to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of second-degree burglary.

Deleon, 17, of Sioux City, has pleaded not guilty to burglary and theft charges. He is scheduled to stand trial April 17.
