On Friday, police charged a North Platte woman with burglarizing a neighbor’s home, looking for prescription drugs.Jalanea Tabke, 21, was charged with possession and obstruction of justice in addition to burglary and taken to jail. Bond is set at $50,000.
The case started around 12:30 p.m. Friday, when police received a complaint from a home in the 2100 block of West D. The alleged victim said that morning their neighbor Jalanea Tabke came over to borrow an ingredient for something she was cooking. Tabke also asked to use the bathroom, and was in there for quite some time before she left, the neighbor told police.
Later, the neighbor left the home, and upon returning, said Tabke was walking away from their house.
According to the police report, Tabke didn’t respond to questions from the neighbor, who found the bathroom window was broken and both the bedroom and bathroom had been rummaged. Prescription medications and some jewelry were missing.
The police were called.
The officer contacted Tabke, who denied the burglary and refused to give permission to search her home. Police obtained a search warrant, and while they waited, Tabke was told not to go into her bedroom. She tried, nevertheless, earning her the obstruction charge, police spokesman John Deal said.
Deal said a search of the bedroom turned up the meds and the jewelry (rings).
On Sunday at 8:49 p.m., an officer went to a home in the 2300 block of East Philip to check out a reported argument.
Deal said both parties were contacted, and officers determined only a verbal disagreement occurred and criminal charges were not warranted.
However, one of the parties involved was Joshua Wrobleski, 36, who was wanted for several child support violations. He was taken to jail and is held on a cash-only bond of $22,000 – representing child support payments that are overdue.
