ST. CLOUD -- A Sauk Rapids man accused of trying to steal the catalytic converter off of a car at Yellow Cab in St. Cloud has pleaded guilty.

Thirty-four-year-old Shawn Iees pleaded guilty to felony possession of burglary tools.

St. Cloud police were called to the business in the 2600 Block of 7th Street North just before 5:00 a.m. on April 23rd. Authorities say Iees was pinned under a vehicle when they arrived. He was taken to St. Cloud Hospital for treatment.
