Woman accused of entering home, 'going through' man's belongings

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Jonesboro police arrested a woman after they say she walked into a man's home and began "going through his things."

Amy Renee Owens-West, 36, of Jonesboro, is charged with criminal trespass and public intoxication.

According to the initial incident report, Owens-West entered a man's home in the 300-block of North Allis around 10 p.m. Tuesday and began rummaging through his things.

Before officers could arrive at the scene, she ran out of the house.

Officer Paul Williams and K9 Officer Dustin Smith were attempting to find a place to begin tracking the suspect when they saw Owens-West walking from a treeline to a nearby house and knock on the door.

Williams approached Owens-West, who was "sweating and breathing very heavily," and asked where she was coming from. According to his report, Owens-West claimed she was coming from her home then changed her story and said she had been at the hospital.

Williams noted her eyes were bloodshot and glassy and that her speech was slurred. "She struggled with her balance as if she was intoxicated," he reported.

Owens-West denied she had been drinking, but told the officer she was "on several medications."

After the victim reportedly identified her as the person who came into his home and began "going through his things," Williams arrested Owens-West and took her to the Craighead County Detention Center and left in lieu of $370 surety bond to await a probable cause hearing.
