Three Arrested In Carroll Over The Weekend; Two For Felony Theft And One For Public Intoxication

The Carroll Police Department reports three people were taken into custody over the weekend in two separate incidents. The first arrests stem from an investigation into reported check fraud at Availa Bank in Carroll earlier this year. At approximately 6:59 p.m. on Friday, 36-year-old Ryan Cook and 31-year-old Kayla Bonilla, both of Carroll, were taken into custody on one count each of second-degree theft, a class D felony. Authorities say in a criminal complaint that on May 22 Cook and Bonilla deposited a $1,500 check into the bank’s ATM with the knowledge that the check would not be paid when presented and used the money to make purchases at a Carroll retailer. They were released from the Carroll County jail on Saturday after appearing before a magistrate, and a preliminary hearing for both is scheduled for Thursday, July 11 at the Carroll County Courthouse. The other arrest was made early Sunday morning. At approximately 1:58 a.m., an officer made contact with an extremely intoxicated male in the 1200 block of Plaza Drive. The man was identified as 25-year-old Grant West of Clare. Authorities administered a preliminary breath test (PBT), which returned a blood alcohol content of .234, nearly three times the legal limit for intoxication. West was transported to the Carroll County jail where he was charged with public intoxication, a simple misdemeanor.
