AUGUSTA — A 23-year-old city woman has been arrested on burglary, theft and drug charges handed up by a grand jury in March.

Erika Willman was arrested Friday on two separate indictments stemming from incidents last fall and released on $1,000 bail.

An indictment is not a determination of guilt, but it indicates that there is enough evidence to proceed with formal charges and a trial.

Willman is charged with three counts each of burglary and theft by unauthorized taking or transfer and two counts each of unlawful possession of scheduled drugs, theft by deception and receiving stolen property, which occurred Sept. 20-Oct. 15.

Conditions of bail ban Willman from contact with victims of the burglaries and with Christopher T. LaPlante, 23, of Sidney, the man described in police affidavits as Willman’s boyfriend.

In March, LaPlante was sentenced to four years in jail, with all but six months suspended, and two years of probation and was ordered to pay $6,705 restitution.

He had pleaded guilty to three counts of burglary, seven counts of theft by unauthorized taking or transfer, one count of negotiating a worthless instrument and one count of forgery, which occurred July 15-Oct. 15.
