Couple admits to felony charges
May 13, 2014
A California couple faces prison after they admitted Tuesday to having stolen vehicles, drugs and a weapon.
Jimmie Myron Wiedeman, 36, and Angela Louise McMurry, 25, appeared in Douglas County District Court.
Wiedeman admitted to possession of a stolen vehicle, being an ex-felon in possession of a firearm and violating the uniform controlled substances act. McMurry admitted to being in possession of a stolen vehicle. The couple were arrested near Spooner Summit early on March 7. A deputy stopped after seeing a Toyota sedan and a Uhaul truck parked along the side of the road. The sedan looked like it had been taken from a car dealer's lot, because it still had most of the stickers on it. A background check revealed the Uhaul had been reported stolen in Sacramento. The deputy smelled gasoline on Wiedeman and took him into custody. Deputies found a sawed-rifle in the vehicle. McMurry was spotted by a passer by trying to wave down a ride a short distance from the two vehicles. Deputies later learned the sedan had been taken off a Carson City car lot. McMurry appeared to have been siphoning gas from snowmobiles at a nearby recreation facility when she saw Wiedeman with deputies. Deputies eventually found 3 pounds of marijuana in the vehicles.
Wiedeman faces up to 16 years in prison on the three counts, while McMurry faces up to six years. Young set sentencing for July 8.
