A woman accused in two burglaries and an attempted burglary in Kanawha City is facing additional charges.

Victoria Critchfield is now charged with two counts of burglary and one count of grand larceny.

Critchfield is accused of breaking into two homes and trying to break into another. Police said she went into a 95-year-old woman's home while she was sleeping and stole jewelry, a phone and the woman's vehicle. She also is accused of forcing her way into the back door of another home and stealing another phone and additional items. Police said she also knocked on the door of another home and asked to borrow a phone charger, in an attempt to get inside. The woman would not let her in the residence.

Police arrested Critchfield last week after they said she was found with the elderly woman's checks at the BB&T bank in Kanawha City. She was charged with uttering after police said she forged a signature, signed it over to another person and accompanied him to the drive-through.

Critchfield is expected to be arraigned on the new charges Tuesday morning in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
