Woman jailed for burglary

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies arrested a Hulbert woman Thursday after she was found inside a man’s home.

Shelly Dee Matthews, 39, was booked for first-degree burglary. Deputies said a Hulbert man arrived at his home and found Matthews in his bed. The man said he had never met Matthews, and she did not have permission to be in his home. Matthews was reportedly unable to provide an excuse for being in the home.

Deputies took a report from Hope Baluh last week after a tan and black Grasshopper lawn mower and a black trailer were stolen.

Mark French filed a burglary report recently.

Susan Snell filed a report last week after her cell phone was thrown out of a car and damaged.
