Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office deputies have arrested a Staunton woman on charges related to vehicle break-ins in Mount Jackson.
According to court documents, Carrie Massie Robertson, 40, of Staunton, appeared on video entering four different cars at 40 Mount Jackson Road and then leaving. Documents show she drove onto the property at around 2:13 a.m. Jan. 21 and leaving a little over an hour later.
The next day, court documents show that deputies saw Robertson in the parking lot at 21 Stoney Creek Road in Edinburg. It is unclear whether police are accusing Robertson of stealing anything from two vehicles in Edinburg.
Police report that several items were reported stolen from vehicles at the Mount Jackson Road address, including a purse, a North Face Jacket, cash and two credit cards.
According to court documents, police found bolt cutters and a broken lock when they searched Robertson.
Police also found identification cards and multiple credit cards in Robertson’s vehicle belonging to a woman who lived at another address in Mount Jackson.
Robertson faces three trespassing charges, one credit card larceny charge, six charges of entering a vehicle and a petit larceny charge.
Robertson has pending charges in Harrisonburg and Augusta County and a long criminal history dating back to 2003, according to court documents.
According to the checklist for bail, the magistrate wrote that she did not find Robertson truthful.
“When I confront her with the correct answer, she then states she wasn’t trying to be deceitful,” the magistrate wrote, “but it certainly comes across, time after time.”
Robertson will appear in Shenandoah County General District Court for her arraignment at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday.
