Early this morning at 6:15 am, San Angelo Police were sent to the 700 block of E 16th Street for a theft in progress. The victim, Arturo Carrillo, went outside his residence and saw a female subject, 36 year old Amanda Tucker, in his backyard.

Officers arrived at Carrillo's residence and learned Tucker entered Carrillo's garage and took some of his tools without his permission. At the conclusion of the investigation, Tucker was placed under arrest and searched. Officers located prescription medication in her pants pocket for which Tucker did not have a prescription.
Tucker was taken to the Tom Green County Jail where she was charged with Burglary of a Building and Possession of a Controlled Substance Penalty Group 3.
