Roommate charged with taking off with car and credit cardPosted by Jack Howser on Thursday, March 16th, 2017 @ 1:24 pm.
WHITE CO.— White County authorities made two arrests yesterday, March 15, one a woman for allegedly taking her roommate’s stuff and another with an outstanding arrest warrant out of Wayne County.
On Wednesday, March 15, at approximately 1 p.m. authorities responded to 123 10th St., Carmi in reference to a possible theft of vehicle and credit card.
The officer spoke with Sallie Hart.
Hart told officers that her vehicle, identified as a 2000 Chevy Impala and credit card had been taken sometime in the past few days without permission.
Hart said she believed that her roommate L’Pree Evette Collins, 48, was responsible.
She said she first realized her credit card was gone from her purse and then while doing a search for the purse realized that her vehicle was missing as was her roommate.
Hart told officers she checked and noticed that her credit card had been used to the tune of $1,000 of unauthorized charges.
At approximately 6:24 p.m. police were advised of a reckless driver turning on Oak Street from Main Street.
A check of the plate on the suspect vehicle came back as belonging to Ms. Hart.
When stopped, Collins told officers that she had permission from Hart to take the vehicle and simply didn’t wake her up before doing so.
She also admitted to taking the credit card out of Hart’s purse and using it to purchase a hotel room, gasoline and food.
Collins was taken into custody and Hart’s credit card was found inside her purse.
Collins was formally booked into the county jail on three counts of Theft, two felony and one a misdemeanor.
No bond information was available in the case.
On Wednesday, March 15 at 4:39 p.m. Jennifer M. Batteese, 26, of 625 Oak St., Carmi, turned herself in to White County authorities on an outstanding, DUI-related, Wayne County warrant.
This happens to have been a 2015 case that the obnoxious Batteese vowed and declared she didn't have on her record when she was being scrutinized in June of that year over the crap she stirred after her dog was shot by a neighbor, this following repeated reports to law enforcement that the dog was highly aggressive.
Batteese was later released from police custody after posting a $250 cash bond.
