Default Admit vs admit to

In the following sentences:
He admits to stealing the power drill
He admitted committing the crime
Is there any reason we use "admit to" in the first but simply "admit" in the second? Is there any difference? Could we just add it or omit it at will?Thank you

with or without 'to' in either example sounds fine to me.

I think they're pretty much interchangeable
