The call came in just after 3:00 Tuesday morning, police say.
When officers arrived at the store located in the Pony Village Mall, they say they found Darlene Huntley, yes… 45, locked inside.
No word on how she entered the store or why she didn’t just break a damn window to get out.
After a thorough investigation, Huntley was arrested and charged with second degree burglary and second degree criminal trespass, among other charges.
Huntley was transported to the Coos County Jail. No information on the bond/bail amount.
Even worse, they brought the ban hammer down. Hard. Huntley has been banned from the Pony Village Mall for LIFE! *insert echo here*
This, of course, brings to mind another Dollar Tree story we covered.
Back in 2011, we featured Shane Chavis – a man accused of holing up in the bathroom of an Arizona Dollar Tree. He was tweaking, nekkid and hoarding snacks. Oh, and there was Silly String involved. Nothing makes a story like Silly String.
