Bonnie Usher, 46, was sentenced on Monday to four to 10 years in state prison for the series of brazen residential burglaries that happened between Sept. 27 and Jan 15. The burglaries were in Derry, Londonderry and Auburn.
Usher received an additional 10- to 20-year sentence that was suspended as long as she remains on good behavior.
The burglary spree ended on Jan. 15 when Derry police pulled over her car while she was driving on South Main Street. Derry detectives had watched her enter a home and exit a few minutes later with property from the house. Police checked on the home and found that it had been broken into.
Public defender Jim Reis said his client is more than willing to pay all restitution in the case, but questioned one homeowner’s claim that they lost $37,000 in jewelry.
