LACEY, Wash. (AP) - An Auburn woman who was arrested after stealing from UPS drop boxes was sentenced to two months in jail.

The Olympian reports (https://bit.ly/1EV71pZ ) that Karlyn Buttelo was sentenced Thursday in Thurston County Superior Court.

Police began investigating Buttelo after a UPS security officer reported that she had been trying to open a UPS drop box. Officers later learned that Buttelo had obtained an access code and opened drop boxes in Federal Way, DuPont and Olympia.

When she was arrested in a Lacey hotel in March, police found drugs, stolen mail and checks and a credit card making machine.

She initially was arrested on a drug and identity theft charges. The prosecutor agreed to drop the other charges if she pleaded guilty to one identity theft count, since she had no criminal history.
