One-Woman Crime Wave Languishes On Highway 6

Arrested and Charged On 18 Separate Causes - Life On Installment Plan

Waco Police arrested Shelley Eaton, 43, on November 25 on a raft of charges including theft under $50, possession of drug paraphenalia, possession of a controlled substance – Xanex, and 3 counts of theft under $50.

She was sentenced to 100 days in jail, then found herself charged with theft over $500, criminal trespassing, and driving with license suspended on Dec. 16.

From there the records becomes rather murky and confusing, with charges leveled by multiple jurisdictions, including Texas Parks and Wildlife, Woodway Police Department, and McLennan County Sheriff's Department. In fact, the record is so abstruse and incomplete, it calls for transcription to an Excel spreadsheet format to make heads or tails of it.

Booking information shows she was charged with theft over $1,500, a charge which the DA refused, on Dec. 22, and driving with license suspended, another charge which the DA refused.

On Jan. 26, a judge released her on the charges from November for which she was originally sentenced to 100 days in custody, then the charge of failure to identify herself on a criminal complaint and possession of marijuana under 2 ounces was dismissed when the DA refused the charges.

Apparently, she is still in custody on the other charges. Prompt response to requests for public information are typically handled within a few days. It is a matter of record that at one time, requests were met with threats of criminal prosecution - whether by design or by ignorance of the law, the reader may conclude on their own. Nevertheless, the authorities have demurred until Monday at 11 a.m. to clear up the questions raised by their incomplete response to a request made on Thurdsay, Jan. 27.
