A Maine man has pleaded guilty to stealing a classic muscle car in April and driving it to Missouri.

Federal prosecutors say 63-year-old Ronald Fuller of Boothbay Harbor stole the 1971 Chevrolet Malibu convertible in Woolwich, Maine, in April and drove to Farmington, Mo., where he was arrested by local authorities.

When he was arrested camping in the woods, the car was nearby and contained about $8,300 in cash and a large amount of gold and silver jewelry.

Fuller was a suspect at the time in several burglaries in Maine.

Fuller waived indictment in U.S. District Court in Portland last week and pleaded guilty to interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle.

He faces a maximum of 10 years in prison at sentencing scheduled for February.
