LOCKPORT – A North Tonawanda woman, who said she burglarized a home on her street to get property to sell in order to buy drugs, pleaded guilty Friday to that and to the theft of a Niagara Falls woman’s purse.

Kimberly P. Loos, 25, of Oakwood Terrace, was admitted to the judicial diversion program of court-supervised drug treatment after pleading guilty to third-degree burglary and fourth-degree grand larceny.

Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Farkas ordered her to pay $975 restitution for the Oct. 18 burglary. The purse theft in the Falls occurred Feb. 6.

Loos faces a maximum of 11 years in state prison if she washes out of the diversion program, but if she succeeds, she will be allowed to serve three years’ probation for two misdemeanors.
