CORVALLIS, OR (KPTV/AP) -
Officers say a woman who broke into a Corvallis hair salon caused substantial damage before they found her naked and hiding in a closet.
The Gazette-Times reported Thursday an officer who responded to a burglar alarm saw wet footprints leading to a broken window in the front door, and he heard someone inside The Rage shop yelling and breaking things.
After a search, Lt. Ben Harvey said, officers found the woman. He said she was "unclothed, and it was apparent she was high on an amphetamine."
Police said 44-year-old Jelena Monique Taylor was booked Tuesday on burglary and criminal mischief charges.
She pleaded not guilty on Wednesday and was held with bail set at $20,000. She remained in jail Thursday morning.
