Loretz, who has been at large since Nov 11, was convicted of burglarizing the Graeagle home of her father, Art Wolf, in 2009. She was also convicted of stealing about $50,000 worth of items from a home she was renting.

Loretz was hospitalized Nov. 2 after attempting suicide on the day her six-day trial in Plumas County Superior Court concluded with the jury’s verdict.

After recovering from the suicide attempt, Loretz failed to check into a Reno hospital for psychiatric evaluation after being released Nov. 11 from Renown Regional Medical Center.

Loretz is currently being held in the Los Angeles County Jail pending her return to Plumas County to face sentencing. She is being held on $500,000 bail.
