East Ridge Police responded to 913 State Line Road on Friday at approximately 11 p.m. in reference to an auto burglary. When officers arrived, the victim told officers she observed her car door open and a white female carrying items that had been inside.

A second victim also approached officers and said his vehicle had been entered and had items missing. The victim provided officers with the suspect’s vehicle tag number. During the investigation, the suspect was identified as Ms.

Fletcher, 29, of Hixson.

Officers returned Ms. Fletcher to the scene, where she was positively identified by the victim and was charged with two counts of burglary of an auto and two counts of theft.

She has been suspended from her 911 job.

She is scheduled to appear in East Ridge Municipal Court on Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 5 p.m.
