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.
