A Syracuse woman was sentenced to prison for breaking into a Cayuga County home and stealing jewelry to support her heroin addiction.
Andrea Kreydatus, 27, pleaded guilty in October to breaking into a Throop home on State Street Road in December 2017 and stealing jewelry and other valuables. She then pawned the items to get money to buy drugs.
Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann said in Cayuga County Criminal Court Tuesday that while Kreydatus pawned the items for around $3,000, the victim’s statement indicates the total value of the stolen items was more than $10,400. The victim’s insurance covered about $2,600 of the theft, he added, which leaves Kreydatus with roughly $7,800 to pay in restitution.
