LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- A Lawrence woman was sentenced to a year of probation and inpatient drug treatment for her role in storage unit burglaries that netted the thieves tens of thousands of dollars in loot.

Thirty-four-year-old Cori Nehrbass, who pleaded no contest to felony theft and misdemeanor theft, also will be required to pay restitution. Nehrbass told the court Monday she participated in the robberies because she is addicted to methamphetamine. Her attorney says she will be admitted to rehab in Topeka on Thursday for 30 days.

Investigators say the suspects drove trucks into several storage units in the spring of 2013 and emptied them.

Co-defendant Jacob P. Paine was sentenced in October to two years' probation. Cases against Travis M. Darrow and Cheri L. Sponholtz are still being decided.
