GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman who was stopped by a Jimmy John’s employee after stealing another woman’s purse has been sentenced to prison.

Mikayla Hull was sentenced Monday to between 55 months and 20 years in prison for first-degree home invasion and 55 months to 10 years for larceny of a person.

She received credit for 130 days served for the home invasion and 132 days served for the larceny. She also received credit for time served on an aggravated assault charge.

Hull must also pay $200 in restitution.

In September 2013, Hull stole the purse of a woman outside a Monroe Center restaurant. Keean Mansour, who works at a nearby Jimmy John’s, spotted Hull take off and managed to stop her. Mansour and other passersby detained her until police arrived.

Shortly after her arrest, Hull was linked to the Grand Rapids break-in.

She pleaded guilty to home invasion and larceny and no contest to aggravated assault in December.
