Staff Writer

A James City County woman has been charged in connection with a larceny from a vehicle in York County.

Ashlie Marie Wiggins, 26, has been charged with four felony counts of conspiracy to obtain a credit card and one felony count of conspiracy to commit grand larceny, according to arrest warrants filed in York-Poquoson General District Court.

On Sept. 16, a Magruder man told police his vehicle had been broken into, according to a criminal complaint filed in the court.

The man told York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office deputies his wallet with $700 in cash and four credit cards were stolen as well as his drivers license and Social Security card, court documents said.

The man told the investigating officer that before he was able to cancel his credit cards they had been used twice in Newport News including a $500 withdrawal from an ATM, according to court documents.

Deputies were able to identify a pair of people from surveillance footage from a gas station one of the cards had been used at, court documents said.

In an interview with the investigating officer, Wiggins told the deputy she and an alleged accomplice, Zachary Frey, walked down streets in Williamsburg to pull car door handles, according to court documents.

Wiggins did not say if she pulled any of the door handles herself and has not been charged with that crime, court documents said.

York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office deputies served arrest warrants on Wiggins on Oct. 30 at 11:53 a.m., according to court documents.
