Tuesday, 29-year-old Krystal Rains of Kenmore pleaded guilty to third degree grand larceny. Rains stole the funds from Classic Fence and Lumber Company in Amherst between April 1, 2012 and June 1, 2012.

When she is sentenced in August, she could face a maximum prison term of seven years.
Rains has two prior felony convictions for third degree attempted burglary. In 2003, she received a jail term of six months, and in 2010, she received a jail term of one to one-and-two-thirds years.
