The Platte County Prosecutor’s Office ended up filing a felony charge of burglary against Elizabeth Hart, 29, of Dearborn, Mo. in the incident. She remains in custody at the Platte County Detention Center in lieu of a $25,000 cash-only bond.

According to court documents, a deputy with the Platte County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call about a suspicious party at a house in Camden Point at about 10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 26. Upon arrival, contact was made with Hart inside the residence. She was found drinking wine on the couch.
Hart told the deputy she “entered the barn, released the animals and entered the residence to tell the occupants about the animals.”

The homeowner said that Hart entered the home uninvited and turned on the lights before entering her bedroom to tell her about releasing the animals. She did not know Hart and also noted that two cows were missing out of her barn.

A check of records showed Hart to have 11 outstanding warrants.
