Texas woman given suspended sentence for vehicle theft

A Texas woman has been given a suspended sentence on a felony theft charge. Merinda Fisher allegedly stole a vehicle from a business in Sundance and drove to South Dakota, where she was seen driving the vehicle away from a truck stop.

On November 7, 2021, a Crook County Sheriff’s Office deputy was dispatched to a local business on a report of two stolen vehicles, both with the company’s logos and decals on them.

Prior to the report, the deputy reports that he had been with an abandoned vehicle with Texas plates parked across the road from the business. The vehicle was registered to Fisher.
