Cave City woman faces multiple felonies
An Ash Flat woman is facing multiple felony charges following the delivery of a warrant for her arrest by the Cave City Police Department.
According to a series of affidavits from the Sharp County Sheriff’s Department, Deanna Thomas, 34, of Ash Flat, was served with a felony warrant for residential burglary Sept. 1.
The charges stemmed from an incident dating back to July of this year in which Thomas allegedly broke into a neighbor’s home.
At that time, the neighbor was asleep on the couch and initially believed his wife was rummaging through the cupboards. To his surprise, he then discovered it was not his wife, but rather Thomas in his kitchen. Due to a previously sustained injury, the man was unable to chase after Thomas, but was able to see and identify Thomas.
When authorities arrived at Thomas’ residence, she refused to answer the door. In June of this year, there had also been a similar instance reported at which time a female victim had been asleep in the home when she awoke to Thomas in the room with her going through their belongings.
Following her arrest Sept. 1, Thomas was transported to the Sharp County Jail and asked if she had any narcotics on her or in her possession. After stating she did not, and being booked, several different types and strengths of prescription medication were located in her purse outside of their prescription bottle.
After comparing the medication to the prescription bottle, it was discovered none of the pills matched the prescription.
In addition to two counts of felony residential burglary, Thomas was also charged with possession of prohibited articles, possession of a schedule II controlled substance and possession of a schedule IV controlled substance.
