A man who burglarized two Palm Springs homes, and was later caught wearing a pair of Gucci slippers taken during one of the break- ins, pleaded guilty Thursday to burglary, vehicle theft and receiving stolen property.

Joshua Ramey, 29, of the San Bernardino County community of Landers, is slated to be sentenced next Thursday for burglarizing one Calle Marcus house twice within the span of a few days in December 2016 and then burglarizing a second home on Cactus Road two months later.

Police say Ramey burglarized a home in the 1600 block of Calle Marcus on Dec. 19, taking several items from inside the residence, along with a 2003 Chevrolet Malibu, after entering the home through a backdoor. He returned three days later in the homeowner’s stolen car and took more items, though a neighbor was able to snap a photo of him on the second occasion, according to police.

On Feb. 27, Ramey burglarized a home in the 1100 block of Cactus Road, and was captured on video surveillance footage taking items, including the Gucci slippers that he was wearing on March 10 when he was arrested at a Palm Springs business.
