Patterson gets 180 days for burglarizing four houses
Placeholder Image

A woman who went on a burglary spree will serve half a year in jail.
The woman, Kristi Nicole Patterson, 29, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to serve 180 days of an seven-year sentence on three counts of aggravated burglary and one count of theft over $1,000. She will also be required to perform 50 hours public service work and pay a $750 fine.
Her sentence comes following a burglary spree late last year in which she participated in the break-in of four homes around the county. Investigators say it is unusual to see a female serial burglar as most such burglary sprees are conducted by males.
The break-ins included the Nov. 1 burglary of a home on Bates Hill Road in which the house was broken into through the back door. Two laptop computers were taken and were later allegedly traded for drugs.
The next was a burglary on H. Knight Road in which the back door of the residence was kicked in and a laptop computer, DVD player, jewelry and TV were taken.
The same method of operation was used in the third burglary, this one of a residence on West Green Hill Road. In that case, items taken from the residence were later found at Patterson’s home on Keds Lane.
The same was true for the fourth burglary, this one four days before Christmas on Ivy Bluff Road where a GPS and microwave were taken. Items from that burglary were both recovered at Patterson’s residence and at a pawn shop where Patterson’s alleged partner in crime, Alyssa Star Cartwright, had pawned some items in Murfreesboro.
