Woman suspected of stealing gas from vehicles arrested

Troy Police arrested a Banks woman Monday on four felony warrants that include breaking and entering a motor vehicle that police say are connected to the siphoning of gas from vans in the area.

Summer Ann Griffin, 24, was transferred from the Elmore County Jail Monday on three charges of breaking and entering vehicles plus a charge of third-degree burglary.

“Griffin was identified as a suspect in the breaking and entering of a bus at a local church where fuel was stolen on Dec. 2, 2017,” said Troy Police Chief Randall Barr. “She was again identified as a suspect in the breaking and entering of two buses at the City of Troy Nutrition Center that was reported to Police on Dec. 14, 2017. Fuel was also taken from these buses.”

Barr said the third-degree burglary charge stems from an incident of burglary at a business on Henderson Highway at 4 a.m. on Dec. 11, 2017. He said video surveillance of the crime also identifies Griffin as the suspect in that crime.

All charges against Griffin are Class C Felonies, which are punishable by up to 10 years each in prison.

Griffin was processed through the Troy City Jail and incarcerated in the Pike County Jail where she remains on a total of $11,000 bond. Bond on each count of breaking and entering a vehicle is $2,500 and third-degree burglary is $3,500 bond.
