Two women burglars pleaded guilty in Criminal Court on Tuesday in a case in which they were arrested after McKenna Burns said she saw two white females inside her residence when she walked through her open front door.
Ms. Burns, a resident of Azalean Drive, said she chased the women down the street and got the tag number off their gold Ford Taurus.
She said they had pried the front door open and had placed her $2,400 laptop computer in a bag. The bag and laptop were left behind as the women fled.
Police traced the vehicle to 557 Cranberry Way. The gold Taurus was in front of that residence.
Elizabeth McElfresh, 49, and Melissa McPeters, 49, gave confessions.
Appearing before Judge Rebecca Stern, they pleaded guilty to aggravated burglary. Ms. McPeters also pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia.
They got three-year sentences with eight months of active time.
They were still in custody when they appeared before Judge Stern.
Ms. McPeters was directed to get drug treatment.
