Naked Burglar Arrested


A Cookeville man, who returned home this week to find a naked woman in his apartment, held her there as he called police. The victim, who lives on Carolina Avenue, says he got home about 5:30 one afternoon and found a woman in his bedroom who did not have any clothes on. Police say the woman was intoxicated and had apparently gained entry by prying open the back door. Officer Craig Taylor found the suspect, still nude, when he arrived and told her to put on some clothes. Taylor says the female burglar was identified as 45-year-old Linda Sue Hewitt, who police say is homeless. Hewitt had allegedly broken several figurines in the apartment, thrown several items around and had also broken the television. She was booked into the Putnam County jail on charges of vandalism and especially aggravated burglary.
