JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A woman and her daughter face burglary charges after police say they found them and a man cleaning out a south Jonesboro home.
Monday afternoon, Jonesboro police arrested 40-year-old Tracy Ann Warner and 18-year-old Cheyenne Page Cross, 18, both of Black Rock, along with Steven Matthew Casey, 29, of Jonesboro.
According to court documents presented to Craighead County District Judge Tommy Fowler on Tuesday, the three are accused of breaking into a home on Beaver Lane.
At 4:20 p.m. 911 dispatch received a call of suspicious activity at the home. The caller said a gray Ford Escape was parked on the driveway and a white female was seen entering the garage and removing items.
When officers arrived they found the car still parked on the drive. According to the probable cause affidavit, Warner was sitting in the driver's seat.
Cross was standing outside and Casey was inside the residence, the court documents said.
Officers detained all three suspects then cleared the home.
"Officers observed drawers and doors standing open, electronic equipment unplugged and other items moved as if they were to be removed from the residence," the affidavit said.
Police contacted the homeowner who said he did not know the suspects and that were not supposed to be there.
After learning that Casey is on parole and Warner is on active probation, officers conducted a search and reported finding two marijuana pipes and two containers containing marijuana residue. When asked to whom the items belonged, Cross reportedly stated they were hers.
On Tuesday, Judge Fowler found probable cause to charge all three with residential burglary. Cross is also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. She and her mother, Tracy Ann Warner, are each being held on $3,500 cash/surety bonds.
Casey is also charged with absconding and a parole violation. Fowler set his bond at $15,000 cash/surety.
The judge ordered all three to appear in circuit court on April 27 for arraignment.
