Your Tax Dollars at Work | The Modesto Bee: "FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - A fired CIA employee has admitted breaking into 10 homes near the agency's headquarters and stealing jewelry including Camp David cufflinks, Cartier earrings, a Tiffany ring and a sapphire-diamond necklace.

George C. Dalmas III, 48, pleaded guilty Wednesday to the burglaries, which each carry a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. Dalmas, a mid-level administrator who joined the CIA in 1986, was suspended in February, when the charges were filed, and fired in August. He admitted to robberies beginning in October 2005.

Sentencing was set for Feb. 9. The plea agreement did not recommend a specific range of penalties, and Dalmas did not explain his actions during his guilty plea.

No one at Wednesday's hearing mentioned the most curious objects listed in court documents as being seized from Dalmas' home: 1,074 pairs of women's underwear."
