Vermont State Police say that 54-year old Donna Ditchkus of Brattleboro pleaded guilty Monday in Windham County Superior Court to three counts of burglary and one felony count of possession of stolen property.
These charges stem from a string of burglaries and thefts in the Windham County area that started in the spring of 2012 and police had launched an investigation to find those responsible.
The investigation led them to Rebecaa Harkness, who pleaded guilty in November of last year and is currently in prison. Clues eventually led authorities to Ditchkus and during the investigation into her involvement, found over 200 pieces of stolen property, which added up to a value of more than $40,000. These items were taken from multiple locations, including antique stores.
Vermont State Police, Brattleboro Police, Wilmington Police, Dover Police, and the Windham County Sheriff’s Department all assisted in the investigation that found the two women responsible.
