Woman breaks into home, eats food, takes nap, awakened by arriving resident


“Who’s been sleeping in MY bed?”

Those were the words on the mind of a Fayetteville resident who found a burglar in the house and contacted law enforcement, resulting in a felony arrest.

According to a Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, deputies were dispatched the afternoon of March 6 to a residence on Neely Road in response to a call about a burglary in progress. The complainant said she had come home from work and found the suspect in her house, asleep in a bedroom.

The suspect left on foot before deputies arrived, but they located her and detained her so she could be taken back to the residence and the incident could be sorted out. It was discovered that she had entered the home earlier through an unlocked door, and that food items had been consumed as well as clothing taken. Some clothes were found in the yard.

Crystal Davis, 38, of Fayetteville was arrested and charged with burglary in the first degree. She was reported to have been under the influence of narcotics at the time of her arrest, and she was taken to the Fayette County Jail without incident.

Elsewhere in Fayette County, a March 6 traffic stop took place at Rivers Road and Boyd Blvd. The deputy, as he approached the window of the car, smelled a strong odor of marijuana and ultimately found a felony amount of drugs as well as a THC vape pen. Edgar Romero-Morales, 27, of Fayetteville was arrested on two felony drug charges.

A traffic stop took place at Hwy. 85 North and Lakeview Way. A strong odor of marijuana was detected and a handgun was seen on the suspect’s person.

Davon Phillips, 26, of Fayetteville was arrested and charged with two felony drug counts as well as possession of a weapon in commission of a crime, also a felony. He also was cited for having an obscured or missing license plate, which is what got him pulled over in the first place.
