WILLIAMSON - A criminal complaint was filed in Mingo County Magistrate Court by Sheriff’s Deputies R. Fitch, L. Thomas and S. Smith regarding an arrest that stemmed from a Pittsburgh woman entering three homes without permission, and committing destruction of property while inside one of them.
The arrest report for Marcelene Helen Miller, 47, states that on June 17, she allegedly entered a Harvey Addition home on U.S. 119 belonging to Gene and Denise Brinager without permission before traveling on down the lane to a camper registered to Brian and Brenda Dillon where she proceeded to once again, enter without permission. The defendant is accused of throwing around and damaging personal items that were inside the camper including a small refrigerator, a chair and toaster, with a total estimate of $600 to $700 worth of damage reported.
The defendant then fled the scene after exiting the camper and drove to the Hell Creek residence of Connie Thompson near the Town of Delbarton and attempted to gain entrance to the third home, but was refused. Thompson relayed to the officers that she repeatedly told Miller to leave her property but she adamantly refused, and told the homeowner that “this is my house and I ain’t going nowhere”.
Upon arrival, the defendant was taken into custody and was charged with 2 counts of entering without breaking and 1 count each of destruction of property and trespassing; asked to leave.
Miller was arraigned before Magistrate Pam Newsome and was remanded to the custody of the Southwestern regional Jail at Holden where she remains on a $5,500 bond. The defendant is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing next week to face these charges.
