CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids woman was arrested Tuesday in Palo after police said she was discovered intoxicated in a stolen vehicle.
The Linn County Sheriff’s Office said Stephanie Delarosa, 39, of Cedar Rapids, was found in possession of a stolen 2015 Ford Explorer. When deputies arrived at the scene in Palo, they observed her exhibiting signs of intoxication while operating the vehicle, according to a criminal complaint.
Deputies said they administered field sobriety tests, which indicated she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs or a combination of both. According to the criminal complaint, she had a blood alcohol content of 0.046 — below the legal limit of 0.08 percent.
Deputies also requested a urine test because they believed her to be under the influence of drugs, but she refused, according to the criminal complaint.
Delarosa was charged with first-degree theft, a Class C felony. She also was charged with operating while under the influence of alcohol or a drug, her first offense.
She was being held in the Linn County Jail on $12,000 cash or surety bond.
