A Berry Brow man faces sentencing by a crown court judge after admitting to a string of burglaries.
On February 24 Gary Cornelly, of Holme Park Court, broke into Tyreseal Ltd based in Cliffe Commercial Business Park.
The owner went to the premises in Manchester Road in Huddersfield and was confronted by Cornelly, Kirklees magistrates heard.
The 39-year-old was upstairs trying to exit via a skylight, prosecutor Alex Bozman said. When police arrested him he was found with watches, a camera and tripod on him.
The goods, worth £4,000, were taken when Cornelly ransacked another unit on the same business park.
Cornelly also admitted stealing a lawn mower and power washer, worth a total of £690 from a shed.
This burglary took place at a property in Park Lane, Berry Brow, on June 16.
He pleaded guilty to attempting to burgle a home in the Cowcliffe area on the same date.
Cornelly also admitted to theft of cigars from a car parked in Alfred Street, Huddersfield town centre, on February 5.
He was linked to the crime by blood left on a carrier bag.
Magistrates committed Cornelly to Leeds Crown Court for sentencing.
This will take place on July 12 and he was remanded in custody.
