Stolen Property Found in Temple Pawn Shop Leads to Arrest
Stolen property found in a Temple pawn shop led to the arrest of a Buckholts woman who is now jailed in Bell County.
34-year-old Mary Ann Montalbo was placed in the Bell County Jail Monday with bail set at $25,000 after an investigation revealed that she had sold several stolen items to a Temple pawn shop.
The stolen property was linked to a theft that occurred in the 600 block of West Lamar Avenue in November of 2012. The Bell County District Attorney's Office reviewed the case on October 1 of this year and a warrant for Montalbo's arrest was issued on November 1.
Montalbo was arrested in Rockdale on a charge of felony theft between $1,500 and $20,000.
