BALDWIN — A 31-year-old White Cloud woman recently faced charges in Lake County after allegedly stealing a truck.

Anna Grace Spaulding was charged in Lake County’s 78th District Court on one count of unlawful driving away of a motor vehicle for her connection with an incident on Dec. 1 in Lake County.

The charge is merely an accusation and not evidence of guilt. Spaulding is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law. The prosecution has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

In a release from the Michigan State Police, it said troopers from the Cadillac Post were dispatched to a residence on Peters Farm Road in Irons around 5 p.m. on Dec. 1. Police said the homeowner called to report an unwanted female at his residence after a woman pulled into his driveway and got stuck in the ice and snow.

The homeowner helped the woman, later identified as Spaulding, get unstuck and police said she then proceeded back into his driveway further and parked directly next to the homeowner’s vehicle. Spaulding allegedly told troopers the truck she was driving belonged to her father and the home she was at was her father’s house.

Police said troopers called for an ambulance to have Spaulding evaluated and she was initially cooperative with EMS personnel. Police said eventually Spaulding became combative and police said she forced her way out of the ambulance. Troopers transported Spaulding to Munson Healthcare Manistee Hospital for evaluation due to her combative nature, according to police.

While transporting Spaulding to the hospital, Manistee County Central Dispatch advised troopers the truck the White Cloud woman was driving was reported stolen out of Lake County. Spaulding was evaluated at the hospital and then lodged in the Manistee County Jail. She was later transported to the Lake County Jail pending her arraignment.

Spaulding was released on a personal recognizance bond and she is scheduled to be back in court on Dec. 18.
