Dahlonega woman charged with car theft in Dawson County
Cheyenne Mitchell

One woman is still behind bars after being apprehended for the alleged theft of another person’s car several weeks ago. 

Cheyenne Alexas Mitchell, 19, Dahlonega, was arrested by the Dawson County Sheriff’s Office on March 7 and charged with one felony count of theft by taking of a motor vehicle.

She remains at the Dawson County Detention Center on a bond of $5,700. 

Mitchell allegedly stole the car in question, a 2002 Honda Accord, from another person in central Dawson County on Jan. 30, 2022, according to a DCSO warrant.  

The Honda Accord’s approximate value is $2,175, states the warrant. 

In Georgia, theft by taking may be punished as a felony when a stolen vehicle’s value exceeds that of $1,000. Whereas the misdemeanor version of the offense can carry a jail term of six months or less, the felony version can carry a prison sentence of at least one year.
