Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Gabrielle Begay, 21, is accused of trying to break into vehicles within an hour of being released from the Douglas County jail.
After posting $1,500 bond following her arrest for fighting, Gabrielle Begay was a free woman.
But not for long.
Within an hour of being released from the Douglas County jail last Friday, Begay, 21, was right back where she started. She was caught trying to break into vehicles in the jail parking lot, Chief Deputy Stan Copeland with the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office said.
Begay also went across the street to J & T Tire and Hudson’s Hickory House, where the owner spotted her trying to break into his vehicle, Copeland said. The owner walked to the sheriff’s office to file a report.
“While he was in the lobby talking to one of our offices, another lady overheard and looked into parking lot of the sheriff’s office,” Copeland said. “She saw Begay trying to break into her car and told a deputy.”
Begay was re-arrested, this time on entering an auto and criminal trespass charges, Copeland said. Her bond was set at $14,000, and so far, she’s been unable to come up with the money, he said. Begay remained in jail Wednesday afternoon.
