Bail set for Centralia woman charged with November home invasion

MARION COUNTY — Bail has been set at $150,000 for a 26-year-old Centralia woman charged in Marion County court Friday with the November 4, 2018, armed robbery in a northeast side Centralia home.

Darleedria Flippen was charged Friday with Class X felony armed robbery with a firearm and Class 3 felony aggravated battery with use of a firearm.  A Class X charge is punishable by between 6 and 30 years in prison if convicted.

Court records say Flippen was one of three people who forced their way through the front door of a home on North Lincoln.

Flippen allegedly grabbed a female victim around the head once inside the home and then beat the woman with a weapon, threatened to kill her, and then fled the home with the woman’s purse.

Police reportedly found the victim unconscious on the floor of the home with her head in a pool of blood.

The victim later regained consciousness and told police what happened.  She was transported to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment of her head injury.

At the time of her arrest, Flippen was free on $4,500 cash bond in an aggravated battery to a child conviction for which she was on probation. She had missed two court appearances in that case.

A January 31 date has been set in the latest case for preliminary hearing and first appearance with court-appointed counsel.
