A Muldrow woman was arrested July 13 and charged with first-degree burglary, court records indicate.
Jessica Jolyne Walker, 41, faces up to 20 years in prison on the felony charge.
On July 13 around 1 a.m., a Sequoyah County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched in regard to an active burglary.
When the deputy arrived at the scene, he learned that a male had run south behind the residences. Officers were unable to locate that suspect.
The deputy then made contact with the homeowner who said a female was still in the home. A pair of deputies then entered the home and located Walker, who was brought outside to speak with them.
The homeowner told deputies she woke up to find Walker standing over her. She then called 911. She said she knew it was Walker because the woman had come to her residence to use the phone earlier that day. She showed the officers her front door, which had a window broken out and part of the lock lying on the ground. She stated she didn’t know why Walker broke into her home.
In a conversation with deputies, Walker admitted breaking into the residence, and other neighbors stated that Walker and another male had broken into their home that night as well.
Walker said she broke into the residence because she was scared of a man following her. When asked who the man was, Walker said there was no one with her. Walker later admitted to drinking about a fifth of alcohol that day.
Walker’s bond was set at $7,500.
