A Tahlequah woman was behind bars last week after allegedly breaking into a home, injuring herself, and going to a local hospital for treatment.
Deputies said a woman on Thursday returned to her home and found that her front window had been broken. Her TV had been turned onto the floor, and glass was shattered throughout her kitchen.
The woman also found several drops of blood on the floor, and blood stains on furniture. Deputies also collected what was described as a “chunk of skin” from the scene of the break-in. The woman’s couch had been cut, and a Wii gaming system was missing.
Deputies said the woman had noticed the suspect – Jyssica Colleen Mock-Snyder, 24 – driving a silver car near the residence when she was arriving at her home. Snyder allegedly cut her wrist when breaking into the home, and later received treatment for the wounds at a Tahlequah hospital.
Investigators visited the hospital and spoke to Snyder’s 17-year-old boyfriend. They also said they found the victim’s Wii console, and another person’s prescription pill bottle, inside a vehicle that the two had been in. Witness accounts led deputies to believe Snyder used a brick to throw through the home’s window before making entry.
Snyder was arrested for breaking and entering, knowingly concealing stolen property, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance without a prescription.
