A Blountstown woman was booked into the Calhoun County Jail Wednesday, accused of burglarizing an ex-boyfriend's home.
Carla Lea Causey, 32, has been charged with burglary of a structure, grand theft and criminal mischief.
According to the Calhoun County Sheriff's Office, Dep. Jody Hoagland responded to a home on Garrett Drive in Altha Christmas Day. A couple at the home reported they returned to find their front yard scattered with broken dresser drawers and clothing. Inside the home, the living room furniture had been overturned and the kitchen was a mess with garbage dumped on the floor. A pair of partially burnt boxer shorts were also discovered. A woman at the home said she was missing an Ipod, an MP3 player, a camo pellet gun, a Sony PS3 and several unopened Christmas presents. A witness reported seeing Causey at the residence throwing numerous items out the front door.
Dep. Hoagland contacted Causey who allegedly admitted to being at the residence, but claimed she was there with her ex and the woman who resided there with him. She further stated she got into an altercation with the woman, but left only with the presents her ex-boyfriend had given her.
After further investigation, a warrant was issued for Causey's arrest. She was booked into the Calhoun County Jail and given a conditional release.
