ST. ALBANS — A 20-year-old woman was arrested on May 18 after a series of crimes, including trespassing and theft, according to the St. Albans Police Department.

Megan Royea, a resident of St. Albans, was involved in seven incidents that led to her being charged with Unlawful Trespass, Retail Theft, Violation of Conditions of Release, and Resisting Arrest.

Following her apprehension, Royea was processed and held for lack of bail.

Royea’s criminal activities have been frequent, with nearly 70 police contacts since the start of the year and multiple arrests.

She has been particularly active since May 14, following her release from court on conditions stemming from prior charges of Larceny and Unlawful Mischief.

She is scheduled to appear at the Franklin County Superior Courthouse on May 20 at 1 p.m.

The St. Albans Police Department clarified that decisions regarding bail and incarceration are made by the Judicial System, which includes Judges, Court Clerks, and the State Attorney’s Office, not the police.

Additional criminal charges against Royea are pending.
