MASON CITY – A woman who beat a felony charge for her part in a 2012 Mason City home invasion was arrested Thursday on new charges.
According to police, 24-year-old Victoria Ann Carrott was stopped by a police officer at about 12:13 AM. Carrott was wanted on a warrant from an alleged incident that took place on February 28th at about 1:10 AM in the 500 block of 5th Street SE. Carrott is accused of criminal trespass and criminal mischief in the fourth degree for intentionally damaging a garage door and walk-in door of someone she knew at a residence at that location.
Carrott was being held on $2,000 cash/surety bond Thursday but appeared to be released by late afternoon.
On October 25, 2012, Carrot drove three other persons to a residence at 110 12th Street SE. The 3 co-defendants exited her vehicle, one armed with a sawed-off shotgun, and forcibly entered the residence to rob an occupant. Carrott was cornered by law enforcement with one of the co-defendants in her vehicle fleeing the scene. Schools in the area were on lockdown until all four suspects were in custody and the shotgun reportedly used in the home invasion was recovered.
Carrott was charged with felony B first degree burglary but plead guilty to accessory to a felony and received two years of probation, 90 days in jail and a suspended fine.
