Woman faces theft charges

— A local woman is facing several theft-related charges after a convenience store video allegedly showed her using a stolen debit card.

Blanca Aurora Castillo, 26, appeared in Yakima County Superior Court on Friday to answer to the charges of third-degree theft, second-degree possession of stolen property and second-degree identity theft.

According to court records, Castillo allegedly had taken and used her ex-boyfriend’s debit card without permission to purchase $21.02 of fuel from Smitty’s Conoco, 608 W. Wine Country Road.

Her ex-boyfriend, Rodolfo Razo, identified Castillo from the convenience store’s video, court records show. She was arrested last Wednesday.
