Woman charged with stealing pouch left in shopping cart


MONTICELLO – A Monticello woman was arrested by Sullivan County Sheriff’s deputies after she allegedly stole a bank bag-type pouch from a shopping cart at the Walmart store in Monticello.

On April 9, a local group home for handicapped persons went to Walmart to buy groceries. They forgot the pouch in the shopping cart when they packed groceries in their vehicle. The bag contained a credit card, some coupons and a couple of dollars.

Michelle Dye, 64, of Monticello was seen on store surveillance video taking the bag.  When they tracked her down and interviewed her, the credit card was not found, but no charges had been placed on it.

Dye was charged with grand larceny and was released on an appearance ticket pending a future court appearance.
