OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Police say an Ogden woman has admitted involvement in more than 100 vehicle burglaries in the past two months to support a drug habit.

The Standard Examiner of Ogden reports 27-year-old Amanda Kay Buck was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon following a traffic stop. She has been booked into the Weber County Jail on six counts of vehicle burglary and felony theft, and three counts of possessing burglary tools.

Ogden police say Buck is the ringleader of several burglars. More charges may be filed against Buck and police are attempting to identify other members of the ring.

Police say state Rep. Ryan D. Wilcox is one of Buck's victims. His Ford F-150 pickup was burglarized Tuesday night.

Detectives focused on Buck after tracking pawn shop transactions.
