A 20-year-old Montebello woman who allegedly was caught on camera trying to steal packages from an Alhambra home has been charged with three felony counts.
Rianna Adrienne Medina pleaded not guilty Tuesday to second-degree commercial burglary, identity theft and grand theft of personal property, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.
Alhambra Police Department detectives arrested Medina Friday, a day after posting video to Facebook taken by a homeowner who confronted a woman trying to steal two packages from in front of his house.
In the video, the woman claimed that her mother lived at the home. When the homeowner said he planned to call police, she dropped the packages and walked away.
Medina was arrested at a motel in Rosemead after tips led to her identification as the suspect, police said.
“Medina reportedly checked into a motel in Rosemead using another person’s identification, according to prosecutors,” a news release from the DA’s office stated.
If convicted as charged, Medina faces up to four years, four months in state prison.
Her bail was set at $90,000, a DA’s office spokeswoman said.
