The two are charged with breaking into Jennifer Meighan’s house, tying her up, beating her, then stealing some items
This afternoon, sisters Latoria, 26, a hair and nail technician of #168 East Collet Canal, and Tiffany Anderson, 23, a babysitter of the same address, were charged with burglary and harm after Jennifer Meighan, 19, reported to police that the women forced their way into her apartment, beat her up and then stole her property.
In that report, Meighan told police that at 1:30 Monday morning, she was at her apartment on Seagull Street when she heard a knock on her door. When she queried who it was, a voice answered “Yoh sista”, but when she opened the door just enough to see who was there, she realized that it was Latoria and her sister Tiffany, with whom she had had several run-ins previously.
Meighan said she tried to close the door, but the women forced their way into her apartment and started beating her up. According to Meighan, they tied up her hands and feet, and stuffed her mouth to prevent her from making noise. The women then continued beating her for at least half an hour, after which they searched her room and stole her digital camera valued at $200; a pair of gold earrings with the name “Jen”; and a Kimberly brand perfume valued at $40. They then left her apartment.
When the women appeared in court this afternoon, they were unrepresented and pleaded not guilty to both charges. They were offered and met bail of $3,000 and one surety of the same amount, and they were ordered not to molest Meighan, her family or any witnesses for the prosecution’s case, and should not be found within 100 yards of her.
The sisters also have to report to the Queen Street Police Station every Friday between 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. They are to appear back in court on October 22, 2013.
