Lady Looters Get Prison Time for Sayre Fire Caper
Two female burglars who were caught red-handed looting a suburban Porter Ranch home during the Sayre Fire were sentenced to prison on March 5.
Judge Ronald S. Coen sentenced 32-year-old Sabrina Devens to four-years in state prison, and the suspected brains, Gina Rios, 19, to a two-year state prison term.

Aware of the evacuation orders, the two women drove to posh, emptied-out Porter Ranch looking for designer baubles and handbags by Gucci and Chanel, according to the police. They thought Salib's house was easy pickings. It was. He forgot to lock his back screen door and turn on his alarm system when he rushed his family out of the house with 10,000 other residents early that morning.
When the business owner returned home around 1:30 p.m., he saw Rios standing in his driveway. The police said Rios told Salib she was "waiting for Jerry McGuire." Salib also saw Devens peeking out of his second floor bedroom window.

Last month, Rios and Devens pleaded no contest to a single felony count of first-degree residential burglary.
Obviously suspicious, he peered into the window of the women's 1994 Infinity and spotted two of his wife's $800 purses, on the backseat, next to his son's Xbox 360, among other expensive goodies. Salib argued with them until police, who were driving by, got involved in the sordid mess. After investigating, the police found that the duo stole the keys to Salib's Mercedes, gold jewelry, credit cards and purses.
