One person has been arrested after warrants were issued in her alleged involvement in a recent burglary at a residence on Ocoee Street.

Glenda Kay Cross, 49, has been charged, according to Detective Matt Jenkins of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division.

Jenkins established Cross as a suspect after a construction worker at the residence of Nan Jenne was able to obtain license tag information.

According to earlier reports by officer Taylor Thompson, the Jenne residence was undergoing some remodeling work.

The worker noticed a vehicle pull into the driveway at the rear of the home. He noticed a man and woman exit the vehicle.

A short time later, Jenne noticed a package containing brass door hinges were missing.

A number of other residential burglaries have also been reported.

Jenkins said investigation is continuing and additional arrests are possible.

Jenkins is also working to establish a suspect in two other residential burglaries.

A Lee University student arrived home and found a man inside her residence.

According to reports, the young woman screamed and the intruder fled.

Officials responded to the scene to recover evidence, according to Jenkins.

At another Ocoee Street residence, the homeowner was outside working when someone apparently entered her home and took jewelry.

Officer Matt Bailey filed a report for the victim who stated she had been working in her yard. Jenkins said the two burglaries could be tied to the same suspect.

Investigation is continuing.

n Cleveland Fire Department firefighters had a quiet night Monday, but Bradley County Fire-Rescue firefighters responded to a mutual-aid call in the area of Highway 58.
