Minden woman arrested for shoplifting and forgery

by Minden Press-Herald

A Minden woman, Sara Mireles, 25, was arrested on April 10 after allegedly shoplifting at Save-a-Lot. According to police reports, officers responded to a call from the store manager, who suspected Mireles of stealing items as well as trying to pay with a fraudulent check on April 8.

Upon arrival, officers found Mireles with a backpack containing $10.34 worth of stolen goods and six loose Gabapentin pills. Mireles admitted to signing a check she attempted to use, claiming she got it from her grandmother in a Texas nursing home. However, the check was later found to be from an old closed account belonging to someone else, who denied knowing Mireles or authorizing the check.

Mireles was charged with theft and possession of a legend drug, both misdemeanors, for the April 10 incident. Additionally, she faces felony charges for forgery and bank fraud related to the April 8 incident. The owner of the check signed charges against Mireles for forgery.

Mireles, who also goes by the alias Sara Marley, was taken into custody and transported to the Minden Police Department. The check and Gabapentin pills were secured as evidence.
