Burglar, Already In Jail, Gets Conviction For Second Crime

A 33-year-old Dagsboro, Del., woman was sentenced March 6 to three years in prison for a burglary she committed in north Ocean City in October.

Michele Lee Smith was already in jail serving a sentence for a burglary she committed in GlenRiddle last spring.

In the GlenRiddle case, Smith burglarized a house where her sister was the owner’s cleaning lady. Smith had helped her clean the house and knew the key code combination to enter the house.

The owner noticed several pieces of jewelry and a pair of UGG boots missing in early April and contacted police. She estimated the value of the stolen items at $17,845.
