LIVONIA – A Mount Morris woman is facing six felony charges following an investigation into the theft of credit cards from a Livonia residence, reports the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office.
Denise A. Wolfe, 38, is accused of stealing six credit cards. She was arrested Oct. 21 by Sheriff’s Investigator Josh Monster who charged Wolfe with six counts of fourth-degree grand larceny, a class E felony.
The investigation began Sept. 4 when the Sheriff’s Office responded to a residence in the town of Livonia for the report of a past resident that had stolen numerous credit cards and a cell phone from the residence while she was residing there with the homeowner. The investigation alleges that Wolfe stole the cards between late August and early September, the Sheriff’s Office said.
Following her arrest, Wolfe was turned over to Central Booking deputies at Livingston County Jail for processing and pre-arraigment detention due to an arrest warrant being signed by Town of Livonia Justice Margaret Linsner. The District Attorney’s Office was contacted due to the felony-level charges and arrest warrant and recommended Wolfe be released on her own recognizance due to the offenses not qualifying for bail under the state Justice Reform Act.
Wolfe was later arraigned at Livingston County Centralized Arraignment Part at Livingston County Jail before Town of York Justice Thomas Porter, who released Wolfe on her own recognizance and with a future date in Livonia Town Court.
The Livingston County Public Defender’s Office represented Wolfe at her arraignment. The District Attorney’s Office was notified, but did not appear at the arraignment.
Assisting with the investigation was Sgt. Scott Patterson, Deputies Menzo Peck, Cheyenne Masiello and Kevin Barrett of the Patrol Division. The Dansville Police Department also assisted with the investigation.
