MASON CITY – Just days after an alleged theft-fest, a Clear Lake woman came back to Mason City to try and pilfer some more product and ended up in the same place as before – behind bars.
The latest attempted crime by 31-year-old Mollie Kathleen Macdormott took place on the evening of December 13. Mason City police were called to the Hy-Vee Drugstore, located at 875 4th Street SW. After an investigation, Macdormott was arrested on charges of fifth-degree theft and trespassing. She was taken to the county jail and held on $500.00 bond as she awaits a January court hearing.
Earlier this month, Macdormott allegedly attempted to steal from other stores in Mason City, including Walmart, Target and Goodwill. She is awaiting court appearances in those cases.
Currently, Macdormott is facing an assault charge after an incident in September in Mason City. She will face a jury trial on January 24, 2017.
