Charges of burglary and escape from arrest have been levied against a Muldrow woman, police records reveal.
Stephanie D. Anderson, 43, was arrested March 3 in Muldrow after a Sequoyah County Sheriff’s deputy was called to a residence about a suspicious female.
When the deputy arrived at the home, he saw Anderson, who had a valid warrant for failure to appear, sitting in a black sport-utility vehicle behind the residence. While speaking with Anderson, the deputy spied multiple items in the vehicle that she said had come from her boyfriend and that she was allegedly taking to her mother’s home. When Anderson was asked what she was doing behind the residence, she said she was there to sleep.
The deputy saw a garage door to the residence that appeared to have been broken into and had similar items inside it as those in Anderson’s vehicle. The deputy also noticed hammers and screwdrivers in the vehicle, common items used to break into residences, according to the report.
A visit to the house next door led to the property owner’s nephew who was taking care of the location. He said there had been several break-ins at the home in recent months.
Anderson was placed in handcuffs and questioned. She denied breaking into the home. She was then escorted to the deputy’s vehicle and placed in the back seat.
When the property owner arrived on the scene, he was able to identify the items found in Anderson’s vehicle as belonging to him.
Anderson was transported to the Sequoyah County Jail.
Anderson’s second-degree burglary charge, a felony, is punishable by up to seven years in prison.
