On August 16, 2020 at approximately 1001 hours, Deputy Findley and Deputy Peden were dispatched to [2600 block] Roberts Circle in reference to a disturbance. Prior to Deputies arrival, Dispatch advised a white female only wearing a black tank top walking with a black dog was trespassing on the property and had been in their swimming pool. Dispatch also advised the female left walking through the woods south bound toward Kraft Drive.

Deputy Peden was able to locate the female, Ms. Brittany Keesecker, in a dumpster behind the business located at 245 Kraft Drive. Deputy Findley got out with Deputy Peden at this point.

Deputies asked Ms. Keesecker where her clothes were, but Ms. Keesecker said she did not know. After speaking with her some more, Ms. Keesecker stated she was buying and smoking Methamphetamine in a room at the Stay Lodge in the City Limits of Dalton and was dropped off here.

Ms. Keesecker also advised that she was tied down in the room by “her dealer,” and “grinded” on her in a sexual manner. Deputies had a supervisor, Sgt Zimmerman, from the Dalton Police Department come out and talk to Ms. Keesecker about the alleged incident that happened at the Stay Lodge.

After Sgt Zimmerman talked with Ms. Keesecker and other Officers that went to the stay lodge to investigate, Sgt Zimmerman stated there was not a lot of evidence that this happened, and Ms. Keesecker stated she did not want to press charges anyway.

Deputy Findley then spoke on the phone with the original caller, Mr. [VICTIM #1]. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated he was able to pull up the video from his security cameras when Ms. Keesecker came to his house. Deputy Peden then went to the residence to view the cameras and speak further with Mr. [VICTIM #1].

Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated Ms. Keesecker tried to open their front door. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated when he noticed someone trying to open his door, he went to the door, but Ms. Keesecker took off running around the house, and observed her trying to open a storage cabinet located in the back yard.

Mr. [VICTIM #1] confronted Ms. Keesecker in the back yard and told her to get off his property. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated Ms. Keesecker jumped over the fence and ran away. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated she also got into his storage building, but no items were missing or damaged. Deputy Peden viewed the cameras and verified it was Ms. Keesecker. Mr. [VICTIM #1] wished to press charges on Ms. Keesecker.

Deputy Peden then read Ms. Keesecker her Miranda rights and asked Ms. Keesecker what she was doing trying to open the door to the house, and at first she stated she did not know. Deputy Peden then asked her if she was looking for anything in particular, and Ms. Keesecker told him she was looking for clothes. Deputy Peden then asked Ms. Keesecker if she would have entered the residence and found clothes would she have taken them, and she stated “yes.”
Deputy Diak responded to the scene and took over possession of the dog that was with Ms. Keesecker.

Ms. Keesecker was transported to the Whitfield County Jail and charged with Criminal Attempt to Commit a Felony (Burglary), Criminal Trespass- Property, Public Indecency, and Public Intoxication on Warrantless Arrest #63101.
