A Muscatine woman has been accused of third-degree burglary.

Corina Campbell, 34, was charged on Sept. 10 with driving while barred, possession of burglar’s tools, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, third-degree burglary, providing false identification information, and unlawful possession of prescription drugs.

According to the arrest affidavit, the police were called to a residence in Lone Tree for a possible burglary. Once on the scene, the police made contact with a female named Marisela Valle. Valle said that her sister, Campbell, was still inside the residence.

Campbell was found hiding in a patch of long grass near the residence and gave the police a false name and date of birth, the affidavit said.

A vehicle was found near the residence and searched with probable cause, the affidavit said. A backpack with Campbell’s ID was found in the vehicle, along with a wooden box containing what was believed to be methamphetamine and marijuana, a glass pipe with burnt residue, tools for lock picking, and items belonging to the victim.

Campbell was driving with a barred license, the affidavit said.

While in custody, Campbell was strip searched, and prescription pills were found in her bra.

Third-degree burglary is a Class-D felony.
