A Gore woman is facing a felony charge after she allegedly stole a vehicle in Pittsburg, Kan.
Heather Major, 36, was arrested April 14 and charged with knowingly receiving or concealing stolen property, a felony that carries a penalty of imprisonment in the State Penitentiary for up to five years (or up to one year in the county jail), a fine of up to $500 or both.
On April 14, a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was contacted by a police investigator in Pittsburg, Kan., in reference to a vehicle stolen out of that jurisdiction.
The vehicle’s owner told the deputy she knew the white 2010 Chevrolet Malibu was at a residence in Sequoyah County.
The deputy went to the home and spoke with the homeowner, who said Major, her daughter, had shown up in the middle of the night driving the Malibu.
When asked why she took the car, Major said, “To come see my mother.” She was then arrested and transported to the Sequoyah County Jail.
Her bond was set at $3,500 and her next court appearance is scheduled for 9 a.m. May 27.
