Garner woman skips court, is brought to jail

MASON CITY – A Garner woman was due in court last week in Mason City to answer for an enhanced theft charge, but failed to show up, leading to an arrest warrant and a trip to jail when she appeared for trial Tuesday.

Monica Kay Carey, age 36, appeared in a Cerro Gordo county courtroom Tuesday to stand trial on a charge of enhanced third degree theft, brought by Mason City police after an incident this past June. However, she failed to appear last week for a pre-trial conference and was wanted on an arrest warrant, so she was taken to jail instead of standing trial. She is being held on $2,000 cash-only bond.

Carey is a convicted felon, after she was turned in by her sister for stealing her checkbook and using it to buy a $549.99 cell phone in January of 2013. The woman’s checking account was closed prior to the forgery and she reported that the checks were stolen and used without her permission. Carey was placed on 3 years of probation in July of 2013 for that felony D forgery conviction. She has now been accused and found guilty twice this year of either violating that probation or in contempt of court. She owes $1,990.54 in restitution and court fees in that case, but records show she has failed to make a payment.
