Duo charged in stolen credit card case

WARSAW — A woman arrested two weeks ago for failing to appear in court for drugged-driving charges, along with new forgery and identity theft counts, was arrested again, Wyoming County sheriff’s deputies said.

Robin M. Mitchell, 39, was charged Oct. 27 with fourth-degree criminal possession of stolen property and three counts of petit larceny.

Mitchell was charged after an investigation into the theft of a wallet containing a credit card from McDonald’s on Oct. 16.

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.

Mitchell is accused of using the card to make two purchases at Warsaw C-Store and one transaction at Kwik Fill, all on Oct. 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.
