Abilene woman arrested for numerous storage shed break-ins & burglaries

ABILENE, Texas - A 40-year-old Abilene woman has been arrested for her role in what police say involved “stealing thousands of dollars in miscellaneous items from storage shed break-ins and home and vehicle burglaries.”

Amanda Grant remained in Taylor County Jail on Thursday on bonds totaling $130,000.

Grant is facing a number of charges, including state jail felony theft (enhanced), third-degree felony fraudulent possession of identification, third-degree felony theft of property (enhanced), and state jail felony possession of methamphetamine.

She is accused of stealing property in Abilene, Clyde and Merkel.

Police haven’t ruled out more arrests being made in connection with the case.

Information on a stolen laptop ultimately led police to Grant’s residence in the 1200 block of Crockett Street in south Abilene.

A search warrant served at her home revealed more than $5,000 in “various items in stolen merchandise affecting dozens of citizens,” police said.

Stolen items included:

*- Hunting equipment

*- Toys

*- Computer items

*- Memorabilia

*- Personal documents

“A marriage certificate and divorce certificate from the 1800s was discovered,” Abilene Police Department news release said. “U.S. pilot records from World War II and books signed by a famous author were also discovered as some of the items stolen by Grant. At least one firearm was also recovered.”

KTXS will provide additional details as they become available.
