Sheriff’s deputy Brian Baydo said the 27-year-old woman first identified herself as “Jessica Hernandez.” Later, while he was driving her to Vista jail, the woman admitted she had given him a false name because she believed he would be able to find outstanding warrants in her real name, Lindsey Elise Cannon.
In late 2010, Lindsey Cannon was caught with heroin, she immediately bailed out and made a felony plea deal in less than two months. Five months later she was accused of petty theft and burglary, it was resolved within a week as a misdemeanor plea deal.
In February of this year, Lindsey Cannon admitted she was under the influence of heroin, this was another misdemeanor deal; the felony charge of heroin possession was dropped. Also dismissed were charges of driving under the influence and revoked license. The pretty brunette listed an address in Valley Center as her home on the paperwork in which she agreed to summary probation and future treatment in a drug program.
On June 18, Lindsey Cannon was caught leaving a San Marcos Walmart with eight stolen Xbox games and baby formula she was seen stuffing into her good-sized purse, according to an “asset protection” employee who testified today in San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse.
Lindsey Elise Cannon asked if she could just hand back the merchandise, the witness said. Instead she was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary, petty theft, and giving false ID to a peace officer.
Private defense attorney Peter Liss argued that Lindsey Cannon did not have benefit of a Miranda warning when she made certain statements to the deputy, but Judge Powazek held the defendant to answer all charges. The judge also revoked her probation and ordered Cannon back to court on July 31 to prepare for trial.
