TWIN FALLS — A Twin Falls woman was arraigned Wednesday in connection with a year-old burglary of GameStop, a video game store in town.
Lindsay Jean Dyer, 24, was charged with grand theft, burglary, conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit grand theft.
Robert W. Dyer, 38, of Twin Falls and Timothy Lee Yenne, 40, of Jerome were arraigned Friday after Lindsay Dyer provided details of the burglary to police.
The woman told Twin Falls Police that then-employee Yenne and Robert Dyer conspired to burglarize GameStop in the Magic Valley Mall and that Yenne asked her to help them.
Lindsay Dyer drove Robert Dyer in Yenne’s white SUV during the early morning hours of Jan. 5, 2017, to the Deseret Book Store at 1434 Pole Line Rd., where she watched Robert Dyer walk to the service hall between Macy’s and Sears, and used Yenne’s key to open the GameStop door, court records said.
He returned 30 minutes later with a backpack full of Nintendo DS systems, phones, games, chargers and memory packs, plus $7,000 in cash out of the safe, which Yenne told them would be open, court records said.
At 8 a.m. that morning, a GameStop employee found the doors unlocked, the safe empty and the store ransacked, the records said.
It was not the first time she had assisted Yenne is stealing from GameStop, Lindsay Dyer told police.
Later, she told police that Robert Dyer was in jail (on separate felony drug and weapon charges) and said he would talk to police about the GameStop burglary with his attorney present. Robert Dyer confirmed her story, the affidavit said.
Lindsay Dyer’s preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 19.
