Teddy Bear Thief Gets Jail Time

By  | 

A woman has been sentenced to six months in jail for stealing collectible teddy bears from a Michigan home and threatening two children with a gun.
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports 45-year-old Denise Louise Powell apologized Thursday in Circuit Court before learning her punishment. She said "It's obviously clear my life is a mess, and I'd like to fix that."
In addition to jail time, a judge ordered Powell to serve two years of probation. She faced charges including larceny for the 10 stuffed collectible Steiff bears, which were taken from a Hamburg Township garage in July, as well as assault and battery for the threat.
Under a plea deal, the prosecutor's office dismissed charges including receiving and concealing stolen property and felonious assault.
