Cantonment Woman Accused Of Stealing Gas, Taking Clothes From A Dryer During Burglary

August 5, 2022

A Cantonment woman is accused of walking into her brother’s house and stealing gas for her vehicle along with clothes out of the dryer.

Melia Shea Caine, 30, was charged with burglary of an occupied structure and grand theft. She remained in the Escambia County Jail Friday morning with bond set at $20,000.

The victim inherited a home from his grandfather years ago and owns it outright. His sister, Caine, had been living in a shed behind the house for several years until she was legally evicted on May 10, 2022, according to the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office.

A witness in the house at the time told deputies that he watched Caine walk into the garage, grab a can of gas and pour the gas into a vehicle outside. She then walked back into the garage, opened the dryer and took clothing before walking to a bedroom and stealing a Dremel rotary tool, according to an arrest report.

The entire incident was recorded on the victim’s home surveillance system, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

    This person needs to be permanently committed to a mental health facility and locked down. All of these wild and crazy acting people need to be LOCKED DOWN Ok, you won’t go to prison. You’ll go to a mental health facility with every one else who cannot live in a civil society. They need to build mass lockdown mental health facilities for these types. Sentence them to being unfit for society and put them away by the dozens. Soon you’ll see the streets clean up and the 911 calls decrease. Build a massive hospital in the center of the mental health facility in case they need immediate help.

    Enough is enough… there are too many people walking down nine mile road, Davis Highway, Cervantes, Navy Blvd doing X Y Z all over town. Crime and uncivility. Something needs to change and this is it. We need real politicians to be able to clean up these streets and get these people the help they need.

    If they need drug help, sentence them to 5 years in a LOCKDOWN drug treatment facility in the middle of nowhere. You cannot leave for 5 complete years, no good boy or good girl times.
