 GREENVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) - One of three people charged in the burglaries of the Greenville Airport in May 2011 has pleaded guilty.

Tyler Rivera of Holt -- who was 19 at the time of his arraignment in October 2011 -- pleaded guilty to breaking and entering with intent. He faces up to 10 years in prison for the crime.

The thieves -- police believe there is likely more than one -- broke in on the night of May 27, Mark Bellinger, the Montcalm County undersheriff, said at the time of the incident. Once inside, they took an undisclosed amount of cash and tipped over some furniture, he added.

The bandits also stopped in 12 hangars, said Bellinger , and also stole an all-terrain vehicle belonging to a Rockford pilot. The ATV was later recovered by authorities on Aug. 19 in Sidney Township.

An 18-year-old Sidney male and an 18-year-old female from Greenville were also arrested in August 2011 in connection with the burglaries. They pleaded guilty to receiving and concealing stolen property.

No sentencing date for Rivera has yet been set.
