Some Charges Still Pending in Perry and Warsaw Courts:
Additional charges for frequently arrested Warsaw woman; grand theft charges for crime partner
Wyoming County Sheriff's Deputies indicated, through their investigation, that one woman used a credit card from a wallet she had stolen and made two purchases. She then handed the card to the other women who then made two more purchases on it of a higher monetary value.
The first woman, Robin M. Mitchell, 39, was charged October 27th with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and three counts of petit larceny for being in possession of the credit card on October 16th and making purchases with it. Mitchell was arrested two weeks ago for failing to appear in court for drugged-driving charges. Now with the new forgery and identity theft counts, she was arrested again, the Sheriff’s deputies said.
Deputies said Mindy M. Brown, 42, of Silver Springs stole the wallet and used the credit card to make two purchases at McDonald’s and then gave the card to Mitchell who is accused of using the card to make two purchases at Warsaw C-Store and one transaction at Kwik Fill, all on October 16. Brown was charged with fourth-degree grand larceny, fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and two counts of petit larceny. She was released and is to appear Nov. 8 in Town Court.
Mitchell is in Wyoming County Jail, where she was sent after being arrested on the identity theft and forgery charges and for failing to appear in court in Perry. Mitchell did not appear in court to face driving while impaired by drugged charges.
Mitchell had been arrested in April after she was found passed out in her car at Crosby’s in the village. She was allegedly found with crack cocaine and suboxone and was charged with driving while impaired by drugs, driving while impaired by a combination of drugs, criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal use of drug paraphernalia.
Nine days earlier, Mitchell was arrested by sheriff’s deputies after she was seen driving erratically on Route 20A in Warsaw. She nearly struck a tractor-trailer and several cars head-on, deputies said at the time.
She was charged with driving while impaired by drugs, by a combination of drugs, possession of drugs, failure to keep right and reckless driving. Those charges remain pending in both Warsaw and Perry courts.
