2 women sentenced for burglary of Inslee’s office

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — Two women have been sentenced to 20 days of work release and two years of probation for a burglary at the office of Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.

The pair — 23-year-old Emily E. Huntzicker, of Beaverton, Ore., and 28-year-old Rachel A. Kamiya, of Seattle — admitted stealing several items, including a bottle of wine and a tribal blanket, after climbing in through a second-story window on June 15. All the items were recovered, although the bottle of wine had been consumed.

The News Tribune reports that they initially faced felony charges, but pleaded guilty to the gross misdemeanors of first-degree criminal trespass and third-degree theft.

Both apologized in Thurston County Superior Court on Monday. Huntzicker called it the biggest mistake she’s ever made and said she didn’t know why she did it.

The break-in was captured on surveillance video. Huntzicker was arrested eight days later after a state trooper stopped her for speeding on Interstate 5 and recognized some of the stolen items in her car.
