Eau Claire (WQOW) – An Eau Claire woman involved in a SWAT situation in May will spend four years in prison.

As part of the plea deal, Arlene Erickson pleaded guilty to theft and identity theft in exchange for 15 other charges being dropped.

In May, she was allegedly squatting at a home on Chippewa Street. Police surrounded the home and brought in the SWAT team because of her violent history.

In addition to prison time, she was sentenced to five years of extended supervision and ordered to pay restitution for the items she stole.
