Court proceedings for Penny Sanchez Rivera, charged with a pair of felonies in connection to a Sept. 7 incident at City Market in Granby, got underway this week in Hot Sulphur Springs.

Her first scheduled court appearance was Oct. 9 for an arraignment. Those proceedings were continued until a later date with no other formal action.

Sanchez Rivera is scheduled to appear again in court on Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. for arraignment.

Sanchez Rivera, 31, of Parshall was arrested Sept. 7 and charged with second-degree burglary and felony theft.

The charges against Sanchez Rivera stem from an incident that occurred during the late night hours of Sept. 6. Sanchez Rivera is alleged to have taken over $12,000 out of City Market self-checkout registers during a power outage that occurred at the Granby grocery store shortly before midnight on Sept. 6. Sanchez Rivera was employed by City Market at the time of the incident but was not on the clock.
