Linton woman jailed for stealing cash from her mother

Friday, November 30, 2012

A Linton woman was in Greene Superior Court Friday morning to be formally charged with theft after she allegedly stole cash from her mother's wallet on two occasions this last week.

Macy Lee McBride, appeared in court by video conference from the Greene County Jail in Bloomfield.

She was formally charged with theft -- a class D felony.

Her pre-trial conference was set for 2:30 p.m. Jan. 14 and Superior Court Judge Dena Martin appointed Greene County Public Defender Alan Baughman to represent McBride.

McBride was arrested Wednesday after she went to the Linton Police Station and turned herself in to authorities after learning a warrant had been issued for her arrest.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed by Linton Police Department Detective Paul Clark, the incidents were reported to police by the girl's mother, Yvonne McBride, after she discovered money missing.

The mother confronted her daughter about the theft by text messages, Macy McBride admitted to her mother and police that she had taken the $80 in question -- stealing $40 on two occasions over a 24-hour period, Clark stated in the probable cause affidavit.

The defendant told police and her mother that she had spent the money on clothing and food and did not have any of the money remaining, according to court records.

McBride remains in the county jail and is being held on $4,000 surety or $400 cash bond.

I don't know these people but I imagine it couldn't have been easy to call the police on her own daughter. Hopefully its the wake-up call this girl needs.
