LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A woman who authorities say was arrested by deputies after falling through the ceiling of an adjoining Lincoln duplex unit has been sentenced to five years in prison on drug-related charges.

The Lincoln Journal Star (https://bit.ly/1QpOULm ) reports that 36-year-old Kristina Frerichs was also sentenced Thursday to two years of post-release supervision for drug possession and theft by receiving stolen property.

Deputies say they saw Frerichs through a window at her residence in December but couldn’t find her when the duplex owners let them in. Authorities say residents on the other side of the duplex soon reported that someone had fallen from the attic through the ceiling of their living room. Frerichs was found hiding at the bottom of a nearby staircase.

According to court records, Frerichs had been sought on warrants stemming from drug possession convictions.
