An Evans woman was arrested for illegally entering a building after police found her book bag inside and her name written on the walls.
Stacy Nicole Nelson, 38, 60 Fawn Drive, Evans, was charged with a felony count of entry of a building other than a dwelling.
On Aug. 6, the Ripley Police Department was called 113 South Church St., where the owner stated it had appeared someone had entered the building, according to a criminal complaint filed in Jackson County Magistrate Court by Patrolman B.L. Hart.
When they arrived, officers spoke with a key holder, who stated that she had received a call about an open window. When she pulled into to check, she noticed all the lights on the third floor were on when they shouldn’t have been, according to the complaint.
When the key holder looked inside, she noticed a lawn mower was out of place and someone had written on a wall, according to the complaint.
Hart checked the building and found no one inside. According to the complaint, there was property damage on the first and third floors.
Hart found Nelson’s book bag inside the building, and Nelson’s name was written in blue permanent marker on multiple walls inside the building, according to the complaint.
