Mail thieves plead in Minden court

MINDEN, Nev. (AP) – Two women accused of stealing packages off doorsteps in several northern Nevada communities around the holidays face up to four years in prison when sentenced this summer.

Evelyn Aceves, 34, and Alisha Ezell, 40, also could be given probation on their pleas to fraudulent use of a debit card when sentenced Aug. 10 in Douglas County District Court. They entered their pleas Monday.

Authorities say a half-dozen thefts occurred in Douglas County and others were reported in Carson City and Reno.

The roommates were arrested after they tried to use gift cards in Wal-Mart in December that were reported stolen.

Police reports say the women admitted taking the items because they were short of money to buy Christmas gifts.
