The suspected burglar caught on video breaking into the homes of Lindsay Lohan and Audrina Patridge has been formally charged with two felonies, Los Angeles prosecutors announced Tuesday.

If convicted, Calabasas, Calif. native Nicholas Prugo, 18, faces up to six years in state prison. He was arrested last month and is free on $100,000 bail.

Prugo is accused of breaking into Patridge’s house on Feb. 23 and allegedly taking more than $43,000 in jewelry and designer clothes. Lohan’s home was burglarized on Aug. 23 and an estimated $128,000 in jewelry, designer clothes and accessories were taken.

A source close to the case says two more accomplices, including 19-year-old suspect Rachel J. Lee, may be charged soon.

Prugo’s attorney, Sean G. Erenstoft, wasn’t immediately available for comment.

Prugo is expected to enter a plea on Nov. 12.
