The 33-year-old Rhodes woman who claimed she was searching vehicles for a tampon in March at Wild Rose casino in Jefferson faces further criminal charges for going into other vehicles in Greene and Tama counties.

Chantelle Lee Wolf was arrested in late March for burglary after the casino’s parking lot surveillance cameras recorded Wolf going into unlocked vehicles between 2:42 and 3:09 a.m.

When a police officer later confronted her, Wolf “admitted she had been in all of the vehicles,” the officer wrote in a criminal complaint against Wolf. “She claimed she was looking for a tampon but was unsuccessful.”

That case is pending in court. Since then she has been arrested for more vehicle break-ins.

Wolf is accused of stealing a purse from a woman’s car while the woman was inside a Jefferson convenience store about a month before the casino incident. She wasn’t charged for the crime until late April, when law officers in Toledo searched her trailer house and found the Social Security card of the victim.

Also in April she was accused in Tama County of theft, burglary and using a stolen credit card. Wolf pleaded guilty and received a suspended prison sentence in late May.

All of this follows Wolf’s February arrest in Polk County for forging a bank check from another woman’s account and using the woman’s debit card for a total theft of about $300.

That case is still pending. The forgery charge is punishable by up to five years in prison.
