A 28-year-old Murfreesboro woman was charged Thursday in connection to a break-in and theft at a home that happened Saturday afternoon.
Sara Stone has been charged in Pike County Circuit Court with felony residential burglary and misdemeanor theft of property.
The charges stem from an incident Saturday when Tim Allen of Murfreesboro reported someone had burglarized his residence at Mount Moriah on Highway 19 North. Allen discovered the break-in Saturday evening and his home’s surveillance system allegedly captured Stone entering his home around 4:30 p.m. through a window.
An affidavit of arrest filed Thursday stated a bottle of prescription medication was taken in the break-in. Stone was identified in the surveillance footage by at least three people, including Pike County Chief Deputy David Shelby. The surveillance camera also captured a white car with damage to the driver’s side headlight, which reportedly matches the damage to a vehicle driven by Stone.
Stone has been released from the Pike County Jail and she is expected to be in court Monday, Aug. 8 where her bond will be set.
Residential burglary is a Class B felony which carries a jail sentence of up to 20 years and a fine of up to $15,000. The misdemeanor theft charge carries a sentence of up to one year in the county jail and a fine of up to $2,500.
