Roxborough Woman Faces Charges in Evergreen Ave. Thefts

Twenty-three-year-old accused of stealing from five cars, court records say.

A Roxborough woman who was arrested in August for allegedly stealing from five Evergreen Avenue cars faces misdemeanor theft charges in Municipal Court next week, according court records.

Philadelphia Police said earlier this month that tips from residents help thwart a few different crimes, including five thefts from autos Aug. 30 on 400 Evergreen Ave.

Residents began calling that morning to report a male and female wondering around Evergreen and Shawmont Avenues.

In addition to five cars, the pair also attempted to break into a tool shed, police said.

Police arrived on scene and arrested a 23-year-old Roxborough woman. The man was not present.

In her possession were items taken from residents' vehicles, police said. The items—which totaled $700 in value—were returned to owners.

She was arrested and charged Aug. 31 for theft by unlawful taking, receiving stolen property and theft from a motor vehicle. 

The woman was released on bail and has an arraignment hearing scheduled for Oct. 1.

"Editor's note: Patch.com has a policy of not disclosing a defendant's name for misdemeanor offenses." Why not? The Roxborough woman who was arrested for stealing from cars on Evergreen Ave was caught red-handed by the police! When the police arrested her, she had items in her possession that she stole and were later returned to the owners. So please, enough with this "alleged" crap. And we want her name!

The chick got probation for this. The dude got sentenced, but got immediate parole. In other words, both have been free and will remain free.
