MONTEBELLO, Calif. — Remember the woman caught on camera and confronted as she tried to steal packages from a home in California? She’ll have a little time to think about how actions have consequences.

Rianna Adrienne Medina pleaded no contest to felony charges of second-degree commercial burglary and grand theft of personal property, according to KTLA. The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office made the announcement Monday.

Medina, 20, was caught by a homeowner back in May as she was taking a package from the front porch of a house in Alhambra. The homeowner recorded the confrontation as Medina claimed her mother lived at the house.

Alhambra police shared the video and a few days later, Medina was arrested at a Rosemead motel — checked in with another person’s ID. For that, Medina initially faced an identity theft charge along with the other two charges, facing up to four years and four months in state prison if convicted.

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge sentenced Medina 180 days in county jail, 180 days in a live-in residential treatment program, and five years probation.
