Activity spotted on a security camera led to the arrest of a Clinton woman for burglary and related charges by sheriff’s investigators Oct. 19.
Per the arrest affidavit, 911 Dispatch received a call that a homeowner checked his security camera and spotted Allie Robbins, 19, of Clinton, breaking into his house. The woman, the caller told dispatch, per the affidavit, had “… been trespassed from the home a while back.”
Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the home.
When the first deputy arrived at the home he saw Robbins run out the home’s back door and into the “field and wood line” behind the home, the report stated.
The deputy, joined by a second officer, searched the area behind the house and found Robbins hiding there, approximately 150 yards behind the home. She was arrested “without incident,” the affidavit stated.
As officers investigated they reported finding where Robbins had tried to break a lock off a bedroom door inside the home using a concrete block. The bedroom is where the homeowner stored guns, the report stated. She was unsuccessful in breaking into the room. A set of keys were found in Robbin’s pocket for a lawnmower stored at the home.
Robbins is charged with Residential Burglary, a class B felony, Theft of Property, Criminal Mischief and Fleeing on Foot, class A misdemeanors.
Van Buren County Sheriff’s office website shows Robbins was release from jail Nov. 3 on a $3,500 bond.
