PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (EYT) – Police in Jefferson County have filed felony charges against a local woman in connection with a break-in that occurred earlier this week in Punxsutawney.

On May 18, 2015, Punxsutawney Borough Police received a report that Aimee D. Story, 19, of Punxsutwaney, had allegedly broken into a residence on Clark Street in Punxsutawney.

According to a Criminal Complaint filed at Magisterial District Judge Robert Chambers office, a known male reported that he was watching television with a known female when Story allegedly broke into the residence.

Story allegedly entered the home through a locked screen door by pushing through it and a wooden door, breaking the door jam.

The complaint states that Story then allegedly started screaming and attacked the known female before running down the steps, according to the complaint.

The known female stated that she attempted to call the police when Story grabbed her phone and smashed it, according to the complaint.

Officers Conrad and Renwick later located Story at another residence in Punxsutawney Borough.

Story was then transported to Punxsutawney Borough Police Station, where she signed a waiver and agreed to answer questions pertaining to the alleged incident.

The complaint states Officer Conrad asked Story where she was earlier that day. Story stated that she had not left her house “except to take the dog out to the bathroom.”

Officer Conrad repeated the question, at which point Story stated that she “hung out” with three individuals at a local store during the morning hours of the day. She then stated that she and one of the individuals “started to fight.” Story told police that the same individual dropped her off at her home around 1:30 a.m.

The complaint states that Officer Conrad called a known female to confirm Story’s statement. The known female, one of the individuals who Story claimed was present at the store, stated that she had not “hung out” with Story that morning.

According to the complaint, the known female also told Officer Conrad that Story called her and stated, she “had just broken into (victim’s) house and punched (second victim). Story also allegedly stated, “so if the cops (ask), tell them that I was with you.”

The following charges were subsequently filed against Story:

– Burglary – Overnight Accommodation, Person Present, Felony 1
– Criminal Trespass – Break Into Structure, Felony 2
– Criminal Trespass – Damage Property, Summary
– Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary

Story was housed in the Jefferson County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

Court records indicate that a preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 26 at Judge Chamber’s office.
