Police Briefs; Woman Arrested on Auto Burglary Charge

Article excerpt

Byline: DAN SCANLAN

A 39-year-old Mandarin woman was arrested early Monday on a charge of auto burglary after a Jacksonville Sheriff's Office burglary detective reported the woman knocked on his home's door and claimed she had dropped her cellular telephone in his car while closing its open rear hatch in the 8900 block of Yarmouth Road.

Police said she woke the detective at 1:30 a.m. to claim she had been walking her dog when she noticed his car's rear hatch was ajar and closed it. She claimed it wasn't until she got home that she realized her cellular telephone was missing and returned to the detective's home, police said.

The detective found the cellular telephone and a small flashlight in his car's rear passenger seat, not the rear hatch, police said. The woman was arrested at the scene.

Following are the crimes and other incidents reported recently in the Mandarin, Beauclerc and San Jose areas, according to the Jacksonville Sheriffs' Office:

A bullet was fired Sunday afternoon into an apartment at a complex at 4295 Sunbeam Road, but no one was injured.

Police said the resident was out of town when the bullet shattered a front window between 1 and 6 p.m., then lodged in a window sill.
