SPENCERPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) -- A 35-year-old Rochester man pleaded guilty Friday after prosecutors say he helped steal over 80 firearms from a Parma gun shop. 

Marcos Guzman pleaded guilty to theft of firearms from a federal firearms licensee and possession of firearms by a convicted felon.

Federal prosecutors say last August, Guzman and two others, Dakota Sarfaty and Luis D. Marcano-Agosto, broke into Chinappi's Firearms & Supplies on West Ridge Road. After Sarfaty entered the store through a hole in the wall, all three stole 87 firearms, most of which were handguns. 

Guzman and his co-defendants then sold many of the firearms on the streets of Rochester. According to the plea agreement, law enforcement recovered 14 of the stolen firearms the day after the theft. 

Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. 

Guzman's sentencing is scheduled for July 29.
