Mitchell woman faces burglary, forgery, theft charges

A Mitchell woman was arrested in October on burglary, forgery and grand theft charges.

Danielle Debuhr, 35, is accused of writing checks that totaled more than $1,000 from a male victim’s account. She admitted to throwing away the checkbook in an attempt to destroy evidence, according to court documents.

Debuhr also allegedly admitted to entering the victim’s residence on Nov. 18 around 5 p.m. to steal an affidavit of forgery paperwork the victim was to give to law enforcement.

Shortly after the alleged burglary, Debuhr was pulled over for first-offense drunken driving, and she allegedly had the affidavit in her possession.

The burglary charge carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine. The forgery charge carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and $10,000 fine. The grand theft charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
