Posted: Updated:

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - A man suspected of cutting catalytic converters off more than two-dozen cars from Sea-Tac to Everett pleaded guilty Thursday to six counts of malicious mischief.

The 41-year-old Marysville man, Michael Heuslein, was sentenced in Snohomish County Superior Court to more than two years in prison.

The Daily Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1oMNvAW) Heuslein bragged to police he could steal a converter in seconds, using a new saw blade every time. He sold the emission control devices as scrap metal.
