A Winterville woman was arrested on firearms charges recently after she reportedly decided to pick apples on Charlie Bolton Road property that was not hers in order to make some applesauce.
Amy Lee Mitchell, 37, 16 Sulphur Springs Drive, was charged with receipt, possession, or transfer of a firearm by a convicted felon after the responding officer found a loaded handgun in the floorboard of her vehicle in plain sight.
According to the incident report, the property owner said he spotted two women picking apples at his rental property. When he confronted them, one of them became irate, so he called 911. When the officer asked Mitchell why they were there, she reportedly said she wanted to make applesauce. During the course of the investigation it was determined that Mitchell was a convicted felon and she was arrested on the firearms charge and taken to jail.
In another arrest, a Colbert man was arrested last week after he reportedly knocked on a door at a residence on Lem Edwards Road claiming to be a police officer.
Christopher David Kettle, 25, 1423 Lem Edwards Road, Colbert, was charged with impersonating a public officer or employee.
According to the incident report, Kettle knocked on the door telling the woman, who was home with her children, that his name was “Christopher” and that someone had shot his dog and he “needed to talk to someone.” After she told him she was calling 911, he then reportedly told the woman he was a police officer and that he would show her his badge if she opened the door.
