A Superior woman who broke into a rural Douglas County home to steal items and checks to fuel a drug addiction will spend 45 days in jail.
Kayla Marie Frye, 22, pleaded no contest March 28 to burglary and two amended counts of theft in Douglas County Circuit Court. She was sentenced to two years of probation and 45 days in jail for the theft charges. Frye was also ordered to pay $3,595 restitution.
A deferred judgment of conviction agreement was entered for the burglary charge. If Frye complies with her probation and bail conditions and does not commit any new crimes for two years, the felony charge would be reduced to misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass to dwelling with no further penalties.
Three counts of uttering a forgery were dismissed but read in for sentencing.
According to the criminal complaint:
A homeowner on Lyman Lake Road reported two burglaries to her home in July. Among the missing items were blank personal checks.
Superior police were contacted by a Superior woman who said her friend, Frye, asked her to cash stolen checks and pawn jewelry items.
When questioned by Douglas County Sheriff’s Detective Jeff Bethards, Frye said she is friends with the daughter of the homeowner on Lyman Lake Road. They were supposed to meet to go job hunting, but her friend backed out at the last minute. Since she knew the homeowner and her daughter were out of the house, Frye said she crawled through a bedroom window and stole the items. She told Bethards she needed the money because she was addicted to Adderall, a medication used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and narcolepsy. The medicine, a stimulant, contains amphetamine and dextroamphetamine.
