CLEARFIELD — A 52-year-old woman recently arrested for stealing from vehicles in Syracuse has been arrested again — this time by Clearfield police — while stealing from vehicles in a residential area.
Marianne Ricks, of Clearfield, is charged with 11 counts of vehicle burglary, all class A misdemeanors, one third-degree felony possession of a controlled substance and one count of interference with an arresting officer, a class B misdemeanor.
“She wasn’t done,” Police Lt. Adam Malan said of Ricks’ crime spree.
Syracuse police arrested Ricks and booked her into Davis County Jail on Dec. 7 when a witness called police after seeing Ricks entering unlocked vehicles and removing items.
Ricks bailed out of jail Dec. 8.
Ricks appeared in 2nd District Court on Monday, and another hearing is set for Dec. 20.
She is now being held in jail on no bail.
Malan said Clearfield police were called Saturday to 362 N. 475 East after a car alarm went off. The owner of the car told police he saw a red SUV going east as it left the area.
Police say they then found Ricks in another driveway, rummaging through two other cars. A red SUV was parked a short distance away, Malan said.
When asked what she was doing, Ricks told the officer she was “just getting her smokes out of the car” and then walked toward the red SUV.
Ricks was arrested after trying to get away from the officer.
Officers found several GPS devices, cellphones, portable DVD players and CDs in her car.
As they tried to find out who the owners were, they learned that some of the items belonged to people who reported items stolen from their cars in Layton at Cafe Rio and at the Tanner Clinic, Malan said.
A search warrant was also served on Ricks’ home, where officers found stolen credit cards.
Malan said police still have some items they would like to return to owners.
Anyone who believes their car was burglarized in the past two weeks can call police at 801-525-2816.
