On July 25, 2020 at approximately 0853 I was dispatched to [1000 block] Deleware Dr in reference to an unknown woman inside the caller’s house.

Prior to my arrival I was informed the woman had entered the residence without permission, went to sleep, and was now washing clothes using the home owner’s washing machine. Just prior to my going on scene I was informed the caller was now advising the woman was naked and stealing clothes from the residence.

At this time I began making my approach to the house. Mr. [VICTIM #1] met me in the driveway. Mr. [VICTIM #1] advised a woman, whom he has no idea who she is, entered the residence while his grandmother was sleeping and entered her bedroom.

It was then advised the woman exited the room and started a load of laundry using his grandmother’s washing machine. Mr. [VICTIM #1] stated he approached the subject and asked her to leave but she, instead, went into his grandfather’s bedroom and shut the door.

From there the woman dressed herself in one of his grandfather’s blue button down collar shirts and began going through the closets and drawers in the bedroom. The suspect then took a brown bag of the homeowner’s and began filling it with items from the bedroom. After learning the above I proceeded inside the residence. Mr. [VICTIM #1] opened the bedroom door and I was met with the female subject.

Upon seeing the female I immediately recognized her from having encountered her the previous date. This woman, Ms. Heather Brock, has had at least 3 police encounters within the last two days and I knew upon seeing her she did not live at the above location because she told me she was homeless the prior date.

At this time I asked Ms. Brock what was going on. Ms. Brock asked “what do you mean?” she then stated she has paid her first month’s rent to “them” and was unpacking her belongings. Ms. Brock was actively digging through items in the brown bag referenced above as I was speaking with her. At this time I asked Ms. Brock to stand up and place her hands behind her back. She did such and I placed her into handcuffs without issue. I then walked Ms. Brock to the front of my patrol vehicle where she was searched and miranda was read. I then asked Ms. Brock if she freely and voluntarily wished to speak with me regarding what was going on but she refrained.

After the above I proceeded back inside the residence where I provided Mr. [VICTIM #1] and his grandmother, Ms.[VICTIM #2], my business card and the case number. I then gathered Ms. Brock’s items from the washing machine and secured them in my patrol vehicle.

Upon stepping back to my patrol car officer Bethune advised Ms. Brock had informed him the house she was at was hers, not the complainants, and the clothes she had on belonged to her husband, not that of one of the resident’s. I thanked officer bethune for his help and then went to secure Ms. Brock in the back seat of my patrol vehicle via seat belt.

Ms. Brock refused it, instead screamed, attempted to exit the vehicle, and then lifted her right leg against the partition as if to kick it when I prevented her from exiting the car. At this time I shut the door. I then asked Ms. Brock if she was a U. S. Citizen but she refused to answer.

Ms. Brock was then transported to the whitfield county jail. While at the jail Ms. Brock repeatedly told me she owns all of the houses on “that street” and she could get me a house too if I “made things right.” she then demanded I speak with every house member in the neighborhood “thrice” and release her from jail. I informed her that would not happen.

A short while after arriving at the jail, booking exited and Ms. Brock had to be assisted out of the vehicle by them as she was refusing to step out of the vehicle on her own. She was then walked inside the jail and custody was shifted to county’s control. While the sheriff’s office was booking Ms. Brock into their jail I began completing the warrantless arrest. I charged Ms. Brock with burglary in the 1st degree on warrantless arrest form 62494.

I then turned over ms. Brock’s wet clothes to booking staff and left her in their care.

No further information at this time.
