After spending more than a month in jail, a woman returned home to discover that her ex-girlfriend had taken her phone and changed her account pass codes.
The woman said she and her ex-girlfriend had ended their relationship in early August. At the time of the break up, the woman reclaimed a phone she had previously allowed her ex-girlfriend to use.
Two days later, the phone was taken out of the woman’s car. The woman said her ex-girlfriend was responsible and that an argument ensued later that evening. As a result of the argument, the woman was arrested for aggravated assault.
Upon her release from jail, the woman attempted to log onto her phone account and discovered the pass codes had been changed. According to the woman, the only other person who had access to the account was her ex-girlfriend. The woman added that her ex-girlfriend also had a dryer, a fossil watch and a pair of work boots that she refused to return.
The woman said she wanted the items back, but could not go to her ex-girlfriend’s residence because of the conditions of her bond.
The officer later spoke with the ex-girlfriend who agreed to return the dryer and phone as long as an officer was present, but said she did not have the watch or work boots.
