Man Pleads Guilty in Indiana Jones Theft


A man who schemed to sell stolen computers and photographs used for Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has pleaded guilty to two felony counts, according to The Associated Press.

Roderick Davis, 37, of Cerritos pleaded guilty Thursday to receiving stolen property and commercial burglary. As part of his plea deal, he will serve two years and four months in state prison.

He would have faced at least four years in prison if convicted of the charges, the District Attorney’s Office said.

Davis was arrested Oct. 4 in West Hollywood during a sting operation by detectives who learned that some of the stolen material was being offered for sale to several entertainment gossip Web sites.

They posed as potential buyers for the images and set up a meeting. When Davis arrived, they took him into custody.
