Tracey Delong Fletcher, 37, was sentenced to serve 20 years, suspend all but three years to serve in the Division of Corrections for second-degree burglary and theft.
On February 21, 2013, the Frederick Police Department said they responded to a security alarm at Rentals Unlimited along Thomas Johnson Drive.
The responding officer observed a white van driven by Jamar Thomas, with Fletcher in the passenger seat. The two fled the scene, striking the police vehicle. A short chase ensued southbound on US 15. The van exceeded speeds of 100 miles per hour on the roadway.
Police say the van avoided stop-sticks by pulling off to the shoulder and continuing across the grass to the United Healthcare parking lot. After speeding through a residential area, the van pulled into a driveway where Thomas and Fletcher fled on foot. Both suspects were eventually taken into custody. Inside the van police say they found three chain saws and three cut saws stolen from Rentals Unlimited.
Fletcher pleaded guilty Wednesday, April 23, to second-degree burglary and theft of $1,000 to $10,000. The court sentenced Fletcher to serve three years, followed by three years of supervised probation. He was also ordered to pay restitution of $3,116.24.
