December 14th, 2017 in Local News

A Jefferson City woman pleaded guilty in Cole County to charges for breaking into a local bank in July and setting small fires inside.

Amanda Glass, 33, was charged with second-degree burglary, second-degree arson and first-degree property damage.

She was placed on five years of supervised probation and ordered to pay $1,075 in restitution.

The incident occurred at Providence Bank on Ellis Boulevard in the early morning hours of July 18, according to a Jefferson City Police Department probable cause statement.

Officers responded to alarms at the bank and found Glass standing outside screaming.

She allegedly had broken out the front door and started four fires inside the bank, which officers put out. Two phones and two computer screens also were damaged.

Glass, who was in possession of a pocket cigarette lighter, was found to be under the influence of narcotics at the time, according to the police statement.
