Augusta woman pleads guilty to thefts

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — A Maine woman has pleaded guilty to burglarizing a number of homes in 2009 and 2010.

Twenty-nine-year-old Sarah Vitale of Augusta was sentenced Thursday to at least three years in prison, followed by six years of probation. She also has to pay back more than $49,000.

She and her boyfriend, Luke Greenlaw, were charged with dozens of burglaries and thefts. Police said they were arrested in 2009 after trying to pawn jewelry at a store. Freed on bail, police said Vitale and Greenlaw fled the state.

They were arrested in Chelsea, Vt., in March 2010 after a car chase. Police said they were found with property from a local burglary.

The Kennebec Journal reports Greenlaw was sentenced to at least five years in prison last month.
