Two Murfreesboro women arrested for residential burglary and theft of property


MURFREESBORO—Charges are pending after two Murfreesboro women’s arrests last Tuesday, July 21.
According to Murfreesboro Police Chief Randy Lamb, at around noon on July 21 the Pike County Sheriff’s Office received a phone call from a home health nurse advising that someone had stolen her client, Candyce Campbell’s medication from her residence on Haislip Street.
On that same day at approximately 12:30 p.m. the Pike County Sheriff’s Office received a 9-1-1 call reporting a fight between Jessica Obar, 28 and Ashley Solorio, 30 at their residence on Mauney Street.
Chief Lamb, Pike County Sheriff Charlie Caldwell and Chief Deputy David Shelby responded to the call. Upon arrival at the scene it was evident that both subjects had been in an altercation with each other. Both had marks on their face and both admitted to fighting with each other.
Obar and Solorio were transported to the Pike County Detention Facility and while being booked Solorio was asked to remove all items from her pockets. She pulled out a pill bottle that belonged to Candyce Campbell.
That same day Chief Lamb had went to Campbell’s residence and spoke with her and her nurse about the theft. The nurse said that someone had broken into the residence sometime early that morning and stole Campbell’s medication. She showed Chief Lamb the back door to the home where forced entry was made to open the door, breaking the safety chain. The nurse then said the subject went to the front of the home and took a security box that contained Campbell’s medications from the coffee table. The nurse said that she had removed all narcotics from the box and provided a list of medications that were in the box.
Campbell and her nurse both identified the pill bottle that was in Solorio’s pocket as one that was stolen along with various pills in the bottle.
On Wednesday, July 22, Chief Lamb conducted an interview with Obar who provided a written statement that she and Solorio went to a house where they were told they could get some pills. Obar said Solorio popped open the back door and that she stood in the doorway wile Solorio went into the living room and took a lock box. Obar stated that they put the pill bottles in a bag and took them to their home.
Obar gave consent to search her residence. Chief Lamb, Sheriff Caldwell and Chief Deputy Shelby went with Obar to the residence to conduct the search. A black bag was located in the back seat of a parked car in the driveway that contained several different pills and a bottle of Tramadol belonging to Campbell. Other pills were discovered inside the residence.
Both women are facing possible pending charges of residential burglary and theft of property. Bond was posted at $25,000 each. Every type of pill stolen was non-narcotic, so a charge of possession of a controlled substance without a prescription is not expected at this time.
