On April 26 at around 10:27 p.m., North Platte Police responded to a residence in the 100 Block of West 9th, after receiving a report of a burglary.
Officers learned that two of the residents had returned home to find Tonya Fuentes in their home loading up a bag with groceries and alcohol.
When confronted, Fuentes told the residents that her sister lived in the house. However, the sister was not present and no one had given Fuentes permission to enter the house and take the items.
By the time police arrived, Fuentes had left the residence.
