Nov. 17 - Judge Mindy Fisk presiding
• Mariah L. Balk, 20, of River Street, Warrensburg, was charged with second-degree burglary, a felony based on an incident Oct. 15 at about noon. Police said she unlawfully entered a River Street residence and took items belonging to a female. The items stolen were personal clothing and footwear, two iPods, a camera and a set of Sharpie markers, altogether worth about $850. Police said the victim saw Mariah Balk brag on the "Stickam" Web site she had stolen her property and would burn it, and there was nothing the victim could do about it.
Balk is also charged with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, for cutting the victim's $60 black stiletto boots into pieces, according to police. Balk is also charged with the misdemeanor of second-degree aggravated harassment for telling the victim to go kill herself, and if she didn't commit suicide, Balk would kill her, or "make her disappear," according to police. An order of protection was issued to block Balk from any contact with the victim. Balk is also charged with petit larceny in connection with the alleged burglary.
Balk was re-arraigned and committed to Warren County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail, and the case was referred to a Grand Jury.
