A July 10 jury trial has been scheduled for a 29-year-old Ketchum woman accused of stealing prescription medicine and cash last month from a home in Hailey.
Meghan Marie Hoyt pleaded not guilty to a felony burglary charge at arraignment Monday in Blaine County 5th District Court. Judge Robert J. Elgee advised her that burglary is punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
Hoyt remains free on $3,500 bond. She is represented by Ketchum attorney Stephen Thompson.
The case against Hoyt arose on March 8 when Hailey police were called to investigate a burglary at a home on Fox Acres Road. Hailey police Lt. Steve England reported that Hoyt allegedly entered the same home the following day and was found there by the homeowner.
England said Hoyt left before police arrived but was apprehended later at her place of employment on West Croy Street in Hailey.
