MLPD ARRESTS BISHOP WOMAN FOR VEHICLE THEFT

On Wednesday September 29th, Mammoth Lakes Police Officers received a report that two intoxicated women were attempting to drive away in a vehicle.  MLPD Officers arrived and contacted Giselle Janine JIRON inside the vehicle.  During the investigation, Officers determined that Jiron was intoxicated, did not own the vehicle and had three active arrest warrants.  On a hunch, MLPD Officers requested the owner of the car be contacted.  When the Mono County dispatcher spoke to him, she learned that the vehicle owner was in the process of reporting his home burglarized and his vehicle stolen. Jiron was arrested about two weeks prior for stealing the same vehicle.

 

Jiron, 37, of  Bishop was arrested for vehicle theft, burglary, possession of credit cards belonging to the victim, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, driving on a revoked license and three warrants.

 

She is currently being held at the Mono County jail in Bridgeport.  Her bail has been set at $50,000.
