Carrie A Jones was spotted walking down Main Street, Sycamore, USA carrying a cat and a rifle. She’s been accused of breaking into her former, deceased boyfriend’s home by smashing a window in the front door. She is alleged to have taken a rifle, a knife and a cat from the residential property.
She’s been charged with residential burglary, unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon, criminal damage to property and unlawful possession of a firearm without a Firearm Owner’s Identification card. This is a long list of crimes but I wonder if it is all about her recovering a cat from her former boyfriend’s property. Indeed, and we don’t know this, the cat may belong to her or she may claim the cat does. The cat may been trapped in the property. I’m speculating wildly but it would be nice to know a bit more about this.
We are told that she could be sentenced to between four and 15 years in prison just for the burglary. I think that this is far too long for burglary alone and I hope that she has mitigating circumstances to tell the court if and when she is tried. Although she has a long history of criminality much of it minor but including stabbing her boyfriend in the eye with a broken glass in February 2018 at her home.
Apparently Jones had been told to stay away from the property. We don’t know who told her. It may be a relative of the deceased man but once again I am speculating.
A person commenting on the source page for this article, suggests that she may have mental health problems. For me, being concerned about the cat, the story begs questions about why she took a cat from the property. Cats are often innocent victims in domestic disputes.
