Woman convicted of burglary [UPDATED]Published 10:45am Wednesday, February 13, 2013 Updated 10:53am Wednesday, February 13, 2013
Shalyn Sauceda, 21, was convicted of felony second degree burglary.
On Dec. 29, 2011, a burglary was reported by two Perham residents who returned home to find their apartment in a messy state. A collection of DVDs, insulin syringes and a piggy bank with $60 in coin were reported missing. The wooden back door of the apartment was also found open.
Other residents of the building had reported hearing loud noises outside the apartment during the time it was unoccupied. A neighbor had also reported seeing Sauceda entering the apartment with a young male.
Sauceda then called the residents after the incident was reported, telling them she had a “meltdown,” but would not disclose her location. It was also discovered that she had skipped on probation meetings.
Sauceda will serve 90 days in the Otter Tail County Jail before being moved to the Minnesota Correctional Facility in Shakopee for 28 months. That sentence has been stayed for 10 years.
