Woman arrested twice within 24 hours

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Police spent much of Monday night and early Tuesday dealing with multiple incidents involving a woman identified as Emily Ann Mullins, 29, of McDale Lane.

A police dispatcher was notified late Monday afternoon of a "reckless driver" who allegedly struck a mailbox on Madison Street. The driver, later determined by police to be Mullins, was followed by the caller to a trailer park on Industrial Parkway. A license check revealed the car had been involved in a gas drive-off in Coffee County earlier in the afternoon.

Mullins told Shelbyville police she left the Coffee County store without paying because of rushing a passenger in her vehicle, who suddenly became ill, to the emergency room -- but then said she had driven directly to the trailer and was unaware she had struck a mailbox. Sgt. Mike Davis called an ambulance for the passenger, who was also inside the trailer, after noticing she was lethargic.

Charges of second offense DUI and driving on a suspended license were filed against Mullins after she failed field sobriety tests, police said.

Police were called to the trailer shortly before 1 a.m. Tuesday after the resident accused Mullins, who had returned a few minutes after bonding out of Bedford County Jail, of stealing a wallet from her purse.

From there, police found Mullins at a McDale Lane home, where she denied having the wallet. Officer Jody Shelton, while searching for the wallet, was granted permission to check her pockets and discovered six acetaminophen/hydrocodone tablets. She was arrested for possession of a schedule II drug after being told by Shelton it is "illegal to possess prescription drugs in any way other than the bottle."

Thefts

* A 60-inch television and Playstation III were taken from a Hickory Drive home early Monday.

The victim's neighbor called him at work at 1 a.m. after seeing a small black or blue Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck in his driveway.

No signs of forced entry were found, police said. The neighbor was unable to see anyone connected with the truck.

* A victim who uses prescription pain medication told police he thought he'd "hidden it too well" -- as in forgetting where he placed it -- but told police Monday it had been stolen from his Apache Place home.

The drugs, oxicodone and paroxetoine, went missing between 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Dec. 5.

* Two English saddles and a wet saw were stolen Friday or Saturday from a U.S. 41A North barn, according to a Bedford County Sheriff's Department report.

A lock was broken to gain entry, the report said.
