Gabrielle Moore, 18, of West Portsmouth was arrested after an investigation into the break-in of a West Portsmouth residence.
Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini said the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a resident who said that while they were gone, someone had broken into their house and had stolen a Dell laptop computer valued at $1,000.
He said deputies responded to the location Tuesday, which led to an investigation. Detectives were able to locate the suspect at a West Portsmouth residence, where she was arrested and charged with burglary.
Donini said detectives were able to locate the stolen computer at a Sixth Street residence in Portsmouth. They confiscated it and took it into evidence.
Moore, who already faces a complicity to aggravated robbery charge has now been charged with burglary, a felony of the second degree. She is being held on $15,000 bond and will appear this morning in Portsmouth Municipal Court.
Donini said the quick arrest was a result of the joint effort of the Scioto County Washington Township deputy and detectives who assisted in the case.
Anyone with information is being urged to contact Detective Jodi Conkel at (740) 351-1091. All calls will remain anonymous.
Moore was free on bond in connection with the April robbery of the PNC Bank in Rosemount. In that case, Daniel R. Furnier, 32, also of West Portsmouth has been charged with aggravated robber, a first-degree felony, breaking and entering, a fifth-degree felony and was served warrants for driving under suspension, obstructing official business and not wearing a seat belt. Also arrested was David R. Scott, 34, who, like Moore, faces a complicity to aggravated robbery charge.
