A Silver Spring man has been found guilty in a series of thefts from autos and fraud cases in Bethesda and Potomac, during which prosecutors say he stole more than $25,000, The Washington Post reports.
Michael Bernard Dorsey, 47, has been convicted of 20 counts of thefts from vehicles and identity theft and fraud-related charges over the course of five trials, according to the report. He could face a maximum of more than 58 years in prison.
Prosecutors said Dorsey took items from cars parked at locations including MacArthur Boulevard and the Potomac Tennis Club, stealing credit cards and property including a $1,000 Anya Hindmarch purse and Louis Vuitton handbag.
One of his victims, Glen Echo Mayor Deborah Beers, told The Post that thousands of dollars were racked up on her credit cards after they were stolen from her car.
