Florida Woman, Who Was Issued Trepassing Warning Earlier In The Day, Arrested For Charging Phone On Someone’s Back Porch

A Florida woman who had been issued a trespass warning from a property earlier in the day has placed under arrest.

Marion County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 6200 block of S.E. 140th Street in reference to a trespassing issue and when they arrived, they spotted 42-year-old Lora Beth Seymour walking across the back yard of the residence. She told deputies she had been charging her cell phone in an outlet on the back porch of the home, a sheriff’s office report states.

Deputies determined that Seymour had been issued a trespass warning from the property earlier in the day and placed her under arrest. A deputy removed her hat while placing her in the back seat of a patrol vehicle and noticed a piece of aluminum foil inside the inner band that contained a crystal-like substance that field-tested positive for methamphetamine, the report states.

Seymour said she found the methamphetamine inside the residence and later claimed a friend gave it to her. A deputy attempted to read Seymour her rights and explain them multiple times but she claimed she didn’t understand them. She was then transported to the Marion County Jail.

Seymour, who lives at 2590 S.E. 170th Ln. in Summerfield, was charged with trespassing and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. She was being held on $10,000 bond, jail records show.
