Rochester Package Thief Sentenced to Probation
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester woman who made headline news earlier this year while stealing packages from residential porches and mailboxes won’t do any time for her crime.
Sentenced Wednesday was 42-year-old Angela Clemens, who pleaded guilty earlier to 3 felony counts of mail theft. Under a plea agreement, eight other charges were dismissed.
Police credited the victim in one of the thefts in helping identify Clemens. His surveillance camera recorded Clemens grabbing a package from his porch and the video went viral on Facebook.
Clemens has been placed on probation for 3 years and ordered to perform 100 hours of community work service. She was given credit for the 55 days in jail she already served.
