A woman found herself facing several charges following a destructive episode at a Morning Mist Lane residence.

At 8:38 AM, a man called police to report that his former girlfriend had called him to say she was at his apartment and was smashing his television and windows.

The man went to his apartment, where he observed that a hole had been smashed in a door window. He then notified police.

Police responded to find the smashed window and a brick inside on the floor. A nearby tenant further told police that he had seen the woman throw the brick through the window.

The police found the former girlfriend, Melissa S. Baxter, 29, of Regency Drive, in the vicinity of the apartment.

They charged her with malicious destruction of property over $250, attempting to commit a crime (breaking and entering in the daytime for felony), and threatening to commit a crime (murder).

Police said the last charge stems from her booking at the police station. Given an opportunity to make a telephone call, and directed not to call anyone connected with the case, the woman, according to police, proceeded to call her former boyfriend and threaten to kill him.
