In Mammoth Lakes, a report of intoxicated women trying to drive a vehicle led to the arrest of one of those women on vehicle theft, burglary and other charges.
Officers said that last Wednesday they received a report that two intoxicated women were trying to drive away in a vehicle. MLPD Officers arrived and contacted Giselle Janine Jiron inside the vehicle. Officers said that during their investigation they determined that Jiron was intoxicated, did not own the vehicle and had three active arrest warrants.
Police said that on a hunch officers asked for contact with the owner of the car. They said when 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 earlier for theft of 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. It is unknown if there were a relationship between Jiron and the victim.
Jiron was, at last word, in jail in Bridgeport. Her bail was set at $50,000.
