Parksville woman sent to jail for crime spree

Kloss pleads guilty to seven charges

A Parksville woman was sentenced to six months in jail after pleading guilty to seven charges in Nanaimo provincial court on Jan. 4

Amie Jolene Kloss, 30, was charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle after she drove a stolen pickup truck into an Oceanside RCMP car on a logging road near Coombs on March 20, 2018. Drugs and a firearm was found in the truck by an RCMP officer.

Kloss has been convicted of several other crimes including multiple theft charges, fraud and driving with prohibited licence.

In November 2018, Kloss and a 28-year-old man were arrested for stealing from vehicles near the Duke Point ferry terminal in Nanaimo. A Nanaimo RCMP constable and police dog Jager helped track down the two after police were alerted of the thefts. Kloss was charged with taking an automobile without consent and several breach charges.
