News

Copperas Cove police have arrested a neighbor of a woman who came home to find her apartment cleaned out.

The victim lived in a complex on North Drive in Copperas Cove and had gone out of town for a few days.

When she returned, she found her clothes, furniture, jewelry and other items were all gone.

It turns out the neighbors had it all, thinking she had abandoned the items after receiving an eviction notice.

Most of the items were returned except for one television set which one of the neighbors said she had given away.

Michelle Rene Tucker was arrested on charges of burglary of a habitation on Thursday.

At least one other person is  being charged in the would-be ” salvage” operation.
