Burglary suspect arrested
Post Independent Staff
Stephanie Foushi, the 26-year-old Silt woman who was named as a suspect Dec. 31 in a home burglary in which $200,000 in jewelry was taken, is being held in the Mesa County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
Foushi was arrested by Grand Junction police Dec. 31 in Grand Junction after a traffic stop, according to Wendy Likes, public information officer for the Mesa County sheriff’s department.
The driver of the vehicle, Matthew Bartlett, 23, was arrested on site for failure to appear on a prior traffic charge and was taken to Mesa County Jail.
Foushi was not arrested at the time since there was no warrant for her, but was apprehended later that day by Grand Junction police after Bartlett and Foushi were named as suspects in the jewelry theft.
The theft occurred at the home of Florent and Rosa Gallichio in New Castle during the weekend of Dec. 13-14. The Gallichios’ son is a former boyfriend of Foushi, and they have two children together.
On Thursday, Jan. 1, a man describing himself as a friend of Foushi, Stanley Leonard Stevenson, 53, was also booked into the Mesa County Jail after he was arrested at the residence of a Clifton man
Stevenson and Conrad Archuleta, 48, face six felony counts after allegedly breaking into the Clifton man’s home at 1 a.m. New Year’s Day and assaulting him by throwing him down a stairway, duct-taping him to a banister and hitting him repeatedly in the face.
According to his arrest affidavit, Stevenson stated he was trying to collect debts from people who owed him money so that he could bail Foushi out of jail.
As of Monday, Foushi, Bartlett and Stevenson were all being held at the Mesa County Jail. Archuleta remains at large.
