Police recently arrested a Ravenswood woman in connection with the theft of a vehicle from Ripley.
Charity Sunshine Reynolds, 43, 1707 Skull Run Road, Ravenswood, was charged with receiving/transferring stolen property and grand larceny; bond was set at $20,000.
According to a criminal complaint filed by Deputy Julia Bowen, on Saturday, July 21, around 10:30 a.m., Home Confinement Officer Benjamin Willis reported that while he was off duty, he saw a maroon Chevrolet Trailblazer on Kristen Street. Willis recalled seeing the vehicle on Ripley Police Department’s Facebook page posted as a stolen vehicle.
While Bowen was en route and about 1 mile away from the entrance to Briarwood Trailer Park, Willis reported a male and female got into the vehicle. When Bowen pulled into the entrance of Briarwood, she saw a Marron Chevrolet Trailblazer parked in front of Lot 28 on Kristen Street and could see a female sitting in the pasenger seat and a male standing in the yard near the vehicle.
Deputy Bryan Varney and Bowen identified the female as Reynolds by her driver’s license.
Varney asked Reynolds how she came into possession of the vehicle, and she stated that an acquaintance told her it was OK for her to drive the vehicle.
Varney contacted the Ripley Police Department and Sgt. Clyde Kenny stated the vehicle was stolen from First Avenue in Ripley.
