Woman charged with residential burglary

A Pine Bluff woman was arrested by Pine Bluff police officers Sunday on charges of residential burglary after she allegedly broke into an occupied residence in the 4800 block of West 15th Avenue.

Detective Steven Rucker said in a probable cause affidavit that the homeowner told police that Shelton Stubbs, 39, broke into the residence and threatened to kill the woman and burn down her house before taking several items from the residence and fleeing.

Rucker said in the affidavit that Stubbs was spotted by officers driving east on West 13th Avenue shortly after the homeowner called 911 and was arrested.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $25,000 bond for Stubbs after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge her with residential burglary.

Bridgforth also ordered Stubbs to have no contact with the homeowner until the case is settled.

The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Stubbs and she was ordered to return to court Aug. 13.
