HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Two men prosecutors say stole nearly $2 million worth of merchandise from stores across the U.S. have pleaded guilty.

Federal prosecutors in Connecticut say 40-year-old Alionis Perez, a Cuban citizen who most recently lived in New Jersey, and 30-year-old Yoandrys Cue, a Cuban citizen who most recently lived in Florida, pleaded guilty Monday to burglary charges.

Authorities say in 2013 they stole $250,00 worth of watches from a Fossil store in Clinton, Connecticut; $750,000 in watches from a Fossil store in Hagerstown, Maryland; $500,000 worth of watches and bags from a Michael Kors store in Lee, Massachusetts; and almost $200,000 in watches from a Fossil store in Grove City, Pennsylvania.

Perez also pleaded guilty to burglaries at stores in Missouri, Kansas, and Tennessee.

They’re scheduled to be sentenced in August.
