Lee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Fort Myers woman after they say she was taking an acquaintance’s belongings to pay her bail.

Nicole Degrasse, 24, received charges of burglary, larceny and dealing in stolen property. She had been booked into jail Saturday for possession and sale of opiates.

Degrasse’s acquaintance Brianna Neberman found Degrasse and two bail bonds agents in her apartment on Lakeshore Lane Monday around 10:30 p.m.. When Neberman looked alarmed, the bail bonds agents asked if Degrasse lived there, which Neberman replied she did not, according to a sheriff’s report.

Degrasse’s bail had been set at $35,000 and she needed $3,500 collateral to give to a bail bonds agent so she could get out of jail, the report said. Degrasse had taken the agents to another apartment, which she could not unlock, then took them to Neberman’s, where she said she also resided.

Degrasse had attempted to take DVDs, a laptop, a watch, an Apple Ipod and keys to a Ford Mustang.

Neberman’s boyfriend called deputies, who placed Degrasse under arrest.
