She was able to give a description of a black Ford Explorer that was initially parked near her car, which fit the description of a vehicle used in a number of shoplifting incidents.
That vehicle was spotted and stopped by Chillicothe Police three days later. The victim's Social Security Card was reportedly found in the purse of passenger 30-year-old Maria Dilisio. The victim's purse and credit cards were also allegedly found near where Dilisio was sitting.
Numerous stolen goods were reportedly found in the vehicle, and the driver was arrested on active warrants for thefts at Wal-Mart and Menards.
Dilisio has been indicted for a fifth-degree felony of receiving stolen property, which carries a penalty of 6-12 months in prison and a $2,500 fine.
