Detectives charged a woman Monday in connection with a residential burglary reported last December, but the charge was later disposed, as someone else reportedly committed the burglary.
Police were first called about the burglary last January in the 200 block of East Olive Street, an Odessa Police Department news release stated.
The complainant told officers someone had entered her residence and stolen several items, the release detailed, including her wallet and a $2,000 smart TV.
Police later found the complainant’s wallet and other personal information in a box next to a business near 12th Street and Grant Avenue, the release stated.
The suspect was later identified as 23-year-old Nohemi Medina, the release detailed, who admitted to detectives to entering the residence and taking property that did not belong to her.
Medina was charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony, Monday, but the charge was disposed by District Attorney Bobby Bland on Wednesday.
Bland said the disposal was due to a question of whether or not Medina lived in the house with the victim and if she had consent of the owner to enter without consent, and Medina also denied taking the TV, but admitted to taking a bag of stuff from the house, which she later returned.
The victim also sent in an affidavit to Bland’s office, he said, saying she heard somebody else had stolen the TV and did not want to charge Medina.
