Due in court: McBride the wedding crasher

A woman who crashed weddings and looted the gift piles is in trouble again.

Pamula K. McBride, 46, was in a felony diversion program for stealing a cart full of groceries from Fred Meyer when police arrested her last August on theft charges in connection with a looted Spokane wedding reception.

But no one in the program has heard from her since she skipped an appointment Aug. 12 - one week after her wedding-crashing scheme screeched to a handcuffed halt.

Now Spokane County prosecutors want a judge to review her compliance with the program, which could lead to an arrest warrant. McBride is to appear before Judge Maryann Moreno Monday afternoon.

She was sentenced in February to serve 45 days in the Nez Perce County Jail after pleading guilty to grand theft in connection with a wedding last June.

Police tracked McBride through stolen gift cards after the Lewiston wedding party noticed missing gifts and the off-duty police officer told them he’d seen a high school classmate who seemed nervous when he asked what she was doing.
