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.
