A woman who was accused of stealing musical instruments from a residence where she had formerly lived pled no contest to charges against her during a session of Baxter County Circuit Court Dec. 3.

Thirty-eight-year-old Kimberly Jordan was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to pay $1,250 in restitution.

Jordan had been instructed by law enforcement to stay away from the residence where the theft took place. She was to be accompanied by law enforcement, if she even went to the home to collect her belongings.

The victim alleged Jordan had come to the residence, while he was away and had stolen musical instruments belonging to him valued at about $1,250.

The theft was reported in late December last year.

When officers were at the house investigating the theft, Jordan was reported to have driven up and admitted to taking the items.

Officers told her criminal charges would be filed, if she did not return the instruments. She initially said she would, then called law enforcement and said she would not be returning the stolen items.

As promised, charged were filed.
