Package Thief Breaks Leg


SEATTLE — An infamous “porch pirate” who was caught on surveillance camera stealing packages from a Bothell home, only to wipe out and injure her ankle on the getaway, was sentenced to 58 days in jail Friday.

Alicia Treat had pleaded guilty to the thefts in January with alleged accomplice Brian Devere. The maximum prison sentence was 60 days.

Treat’s mishap went viral when the homeowner’s surveillance video was posted on Facebook, garnering more than 650,000 views in what many viewers deemed as karmic justice.
