KENSETT | An Albert Lea woman was arrested in Kensett for allegedly going into a home without permission and trying to change into the resident’s clothes.

Tasha Rae Nelson, 29, was charged with third-degree burglary following an incident at a house in the 200 block of Fourth Street in Kensett.

About 7:41 p.m. Saturday, a Worth County deputy responded to a report of a woman inside a Kensett residence who was not supposed to be there. 

The deputy spoke with Nelson, who was in the front seat of a burgundy Honda CRV outside the residence. She said she thought she was at her uncle's house, court document said, so she went inside.

“I spoke with the complainant and she stated she was outside and went into the house and heard someone,” the deputy wrote in charging documents. “While she was checking the house, she found a female in the bathroom trying to change clothes.”

The deputy saw that the drawers in the main bedroom “had been gone through and the clothes Nelson was trying to change into were the complainant's clothes," court documents said. 

Nelson was arrested and is being held in the Worth County Jail for $5,000 bond. She is scheduled to appear in Worth County District Court May 29.
