California robber pleads guilty to Douglas crimes

GARDNERVILLE, Nev. – A former South Lake Tahoe resident, serving eight years in prison in California for more than a dozen robberies in 2004, appeared in District Court on Monday on charges that he committed two offenses in Douglas County.

Dylan Burdick, 25, pleaded guilty to attempted robbery, admitting he held up two people at Stateline with a pellet gun Dec. 9-10, 2004.

One of the victims lost $480 to Burdick, the other had no money.

He faces 1-10 years on the charge which could be served concurrently or added to his California sentence.

District Judge Michael Gibbons set sentencing for Oct. 11.

Prosecutor Tom Gregory said the charges were filed in 2004 during Burdick’s crime spree.

According to reports, Burdick financed a drug addiction by committing 16 robberies in El Dorado and Douglas counties. At the time, he was on felony probation with Placer County.

Burdick’s lawyer, Mark Wray of Sacramento, said he would present character witnesses for his client at sentencing.

“He’s almost completed Feather River College while in Susanville (High Desert State Prison),” Wray said.

Burdick is in custody in Douglas County Jail.
