A Windsor woman arrested in May for stealing a car from Longmont and then burglarizing a garage in Erie pleaded guilty on Friday to one charge and was sentenced to time served.

Makayla Weber, 19, pleaded guilty to aggravated second-degree motor vehicle theft and was sentenced to 36 days in Boulder County Jail. Weber already had 36 days of credit for time served, so she will not spend additional time in jail. She will also have to pay court fines.

Weber was also charged with second-degree burglary, possession of burglary tools and aggravated first-degree motor vehicle theft, but those charges were dismissed by the Boulder County District Attorney’s Office.

According to Erie police, officers responded to the area of Telleen Avenue and Jasper Drive early May 17, 2018, for a report of suspicious activity . They found Weber, along with Alan Clifton of Denver, walking away from a car they had crashed into a curb.

It was later discovered that the car was stolen out of Longmont on May 15.

During the investigation, police learned that Clifton and Weber allegedly entered an open garage and stole items from the unlocked cars parked inside.

Police said they found other items in the car, including drug paraphernalia and a scale.

Clifton was sentenced in August to 180 days in jail and 90 days of probation.
