KANSAS CITY, Kan. (KSNT) – A Kansas City woman pleaded guilty on Monday to crashing a car into a Cabela’s store to steal guns, according to U.S. Attorney Stephen McAllister.

Brenda Tosh, 27, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiring to steal guns from a federal licensed firearms dealer. In her plea, she admitted that she and Kyle Mendez, 29, of Kansas City, crashed a car into a Cabela’s store in Kansas City, Kan.

After crashing the car into the store, they took five guns from the firearms section and placed them in a shopping cart. The guns were, according to court records, two 12-gauge shotguns, a .22-caliber rifle, a .308-caliber rifle and a .223-caliber rifle.

Police arrived and arrested Tosh before she could leave the store. Mendez fled the store and stole a car from a nearby dealership, and was later arrested.

Tosh is set for sentencing on Sept. 30. Both parties have agreed to recommend a sentence of a year and a day in federal prison.

Mendez is scheduled for a change of plea hearing Aug. 19.
