A Fort Wayne man has pleaded guilty to burglarizing a man's house last October. Gustave K. Mboboshi, 19, of the 4100 block of Lafayette Street, pleaded guilty to burglary, a Level 4 felony, Friday in Allen Superior Court.

According to terms of the plea agreement, Mboboshi would serve four years of a six-year sentence. Two years would be suspended, which he would serve on probation. Mboboshi will be sentenced before Allen Superior Court Judge Fran Gull on April 7.

According to a probable-cause affidavit, a woman told police someone rang her doorbell and she saw two men try to enter her home and then walk to a silver four-door car and speak to the driver. They then went to the neighbor's house while the driver parked the car farther down the street. The victim, who was home at the time of the burglary, was in the basement and didn't see who was in the house. He reported watches, a guitar and change were taken, and the suspects entered through the attached garage service door.

Police conducted a traffic stop on Clinton Street, near the home of the victim, based on the description of the suspects and car provided by the victim's neighbor.

Mboboshi admitted he and another man entered the house and took a couple of watches, change and a bottle of vodka, while another man took a guitar.
