WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Police said a Wichita Falls woman who has previous convictions for burglary is caught in the act again in an apartment on Professional Drive.
Michelle Roepke, 29, was arrested Saturday on a charge of burglary of a habitation with a $20,000 bond.
Police said the resident said an intruder came into her apartment through a bedroom window, and she confronted the woman and tried to call the police. She said Roepke grabbed her phone out of her hand and ran out.
The victim was shown a photo lineup and identified Roepke immediately.
In addition to burglary convictions in Grand Prarie and Denton, Roepke was arrested in Wichita Falls in 2018 after police said she got into a stolen truck then got out when they approached and ran into a house. After officers kicked the door open, they say she resisted arrest.
Other arrests in Wichita Falls include criminal trespass and violation of parole.
