Cookeville Woman Charged With Burglary

A Cookeville woman, who was seen taking items out of a car at a restaurant on Interstate Drive, is facing criminal charges today. Police say 22-year-old Ashley Lee Castillo of Virginia Avenue was arrested after the owner of the car recognized her. The victim told police he knew Castillo because she lived in the same apartment complex. He says it was about 2:30 Sunday afternoon when he saw her take several homemade music CDs, an MP3 player, and a speaker from his car while it was parked at Puleo's Grill. Police were able to track down Castillo based on the description he gave and they recovered all of the stolen merchandise. Castillo will be in court later this month.
