Woman denies burglary; forgeryJuly 09,2014Woman denies
A Brandon woman who police say stole her neighbor’s state income tax refund and cashed it for her own use in April before allegedly burglarizing her neighbor’s home in May denied three felony charges this week.
Robyn R. Page, 62, pleaded innocent in Rutland criminal court Monday to charges of burglary, forgery, uttering a forged instrument and a misdemeanor charge of petty larceny.
Page, who appeared in court on citations, remains free on court-ordered conditions that include orders to stay away from her neighbor’s home on 343 Town Farm Road.
At the end of April, Page’s neighbor told police that her $600 refund check had been taken from her mailbox and cashed. Police say Page confessed to taking the check to pay for her rent, utility bill and cell phone minutes.
On May 26, Page’s same neighbor told police that someone entered her home and stole dish detergent, cat litter and shower wash. A Brandon police officer who visited Page’s home that day wrote in a court affidavit that he found all of the stolen items in the house and he said Page confessed to taking the cat litter.
