Woman Charged With Robbing Her Mother In Bratt Home Invasion

May 8, 2012

A 30-year old woman has been charged in connection with a home invasion robbery at her mother’s home in Bratt.

Jacqueline Bernice Morris, who told deputies that she is homeless, was charged with battery, trespassing, felony grand theft of a controlled substance and felony home invasion robbery. She remains in the Escambia County Jail with bond set at $27,750.

Morris is accused of entering her mother’s mobile home on C.W. Caraway Road, just north of Highway 4 near Northview High School on April 28 and snatching a bottle of about 90 Xanax out of her mother’s shirt.

According to an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office report, the victim was sitting in her living room watching television when Morris, her daughter, entered through a storm door. Morris allegedly grabbed her mother by the arms to restrain her, reached into the pocket of her shirt, grabbed the bottle of Xanax and ran away.

A nearby witness attempted to catch Morris, even giving chase for brief distance along Highway 4 after Morris jumped into her Saturn and sped away.

The day prior to the incident, Morris had been trespass warned by the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office to stay away from the residence as she retrieved her personal belongings from her mother’s trailer.

The mother was not seriously injured in the incident.

    “then you have no right to judge.”

    But who gave YOU the right to judge whether or not they have the right to judge? Some things are just wrong even if I haven’t gotten around to doing them yet.
    In fact, most of us judge them wrong and don’t do them EVER. That doesn’t mean we have to pretend like they’re hunky dory for the ones who have decided to do them.

    David wondering at common, silly statement

    Looks like she needed a fix of some kind. I am very sorry for this family. Drugs hurt everyone, not just the user. I think someone has to be strung out to hurt their mama. She is lucky not to have an old school mom like mine. The ambulance would’ve came for me.I hope she wants rehab. If they sentence her to it and she doesn’t want it, the problem still exists. God have mercy on these wicked people. This is just another sign of how far down the drain society has gone. Sodom and Gammorah.

    Unless you’ve seen, walked and been through exactly what someone else has then you have no right to judge.

    Waited too late for disciplinary action. All the momma’s in the world “protecting” their cute little babies from their mean old daddy with the belt. This is what you end up with.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg here. She is always looking for a way to get over on someone…We have given her chance after chance to get help but you cant help someone who don’t want it. Being her half sister I really wish she would act right and like they said but on her big girl dress……

    “People that have never been in the grips of addiction don’t understand the desperation & obsession that comes with it..”

    So we should set our brains aside and delve into the drug culture so we could sympathize with addicts by joining them in their private Hells?

    Makes perfect sense, if you”ve already set your brains aside.

    David for avoiding idiocy

    People that have never been in the grips of addiction don’t understand the desperation & obsession that comes with it..if the mother really wants to help, rehab is the long term answer. She should have never put her hands on her mother in violence. Now she she will pay for that.

    Now SHE is our problem and WE will FEED HER and pay for her home in OUR JAILS!

    Little girl you need to put on your big girl dress, get off drugs and get
    a JOB! If you don’t clean up your act now Jail is where you will live.

    I feel sorry for Ms Norris’s Mother. It would break any parents heart to have to deal
    with an adult child ,on an addiction fueled rampage.

    Intervention via incarceration as bad as it is, will hopefully help her get her head
    togather and giver her Mom a break.
