Valley police arrest belligerent woman

VALLEY — An arrest was made by Valley police yesterday after they were called to a residential area by several concerned citizens.

A woman, identified as 44-year-old Angela Glover of Valley, was reportedly running around the neighborhood, attempting to enter people’s yards and houses without their permission or knowledge.

“Our officers were called to that area by some of the neighbors,” said Maj. Mike Reynolds of the Valley Police Department. “We received calls from several people about her. Ms. Glover was acting erratic and going into various people’s yards while trying to gain entrance into their homes”

She apparently made it into a resident’s home for an unknown reason and had to be removed by the resident.

“One of the callers actually confronted her when she entered the utility room in his home and had to chase her out,” Reynolds said.

Glover is reported to have unlawfully entered several different properties, but only a small gas can was attempted to be stolen.

Because of her erratic behavior and incomprehensible way of speaking, residents and officers who arrived assumed she was under the influence.

“When the officers confronted her she was very incoherent, babbling on about things that made no sense,” Reynolds said. “They assumed that she was under the influence of some kind of alcohol or narcotic.”

She was arrested by Valley police on charges of third degree burglary, fourth degree theft of property and public intoxication.

Also in Chambers County, a registered sex offender was arrested for violating the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, or SORNA.

Jessie James Ware, 59, of Lanett, was convicted of sexual misconduct and indecent exposure in 1993 and 2005, respectively. The victim of his second charge was a 14-year-old girl.

SORNA is a federal law that requires states to maintain a system for monitoring and tracking convicted sex offenders following their release into the community. Ware was arrested for failing to register and released shortly thereafter on a $5,000 bond.
