Woman charged with stealing more than $15,000 from mother

A 29-year-old Minot woman already facing felony drug and theft charges is now charged with stealing more than $15,000 from her mother last May.

Carissa Sue Marcy, formerly known as Carissa Sue Durand, is charged with two counts of unauthorized use of personal identifying information, both Class B felonies, one count of Class C felony unauthorized use of personal identifying information, and theft of property, a Class C felony. She is scheduled to make an initial appearance on the new charges on Jan. 22 in district court in Minot.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed with the court, the charges were filed in December 2017.

Marcy allegedly opened a joint checking account using her name and her mother’s name without her mother’s authorization and transferred cash into that account without authorization from her mother from a credit card in her mother’s name and from her mother’s individual checking account. She also used her mother’s credit card to purchase gas at a gas station without authorization from her mother.

In a separate case, Marcy is charged with Class B felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver or manufacture, Class C felony burglary, Class A misdemeanor possession of heroin, Class A misdemeanor possession of meth paraphernalia and Class B misdemeanor possession of marijuana. That case is set for trial on May 1 in district court in Minot.

In another case, she is charged with criminal trespass and theft of property lost, mislaid, or delivered by mistake, both Class C felonies, and possession of drug paraphernalia and false reports to law enforcement or to other security officials, both Class A misdemeanors. A hearing in that case is set for March 7 in district court in Minot. In another case, she is charged with forgery or counterfeiting, a Class C felony. A pretrial conference in that case is also set for March 7.
