WENATCHEE — A Wenatchee man who stole more than $12,000 in goods from storage pleaded guilty Wednesday to six felony counts and earned 19 months in prison.

Christian B. Merchant, 33, told Chelan County Superior Court Judge T.W. “Chip” Small he was grateful his sentence includes prison-based drug treatment. He maintained his innocence under an Alford plea but agreed he would likely be found guilty of first-degree trafficking in stolen property, possession of stolen property including a firearm, possession of methamphetamine and bail jumping.
