Two arrested after home invasion

By Ashley Bunton -

Two Washington C.H. women were arrested on warrants Wednesday after they allegedly burglarized a home on Spring Lake Avenue.

Kristina Hurtt, 43, and Tisha L. Dunn, 43, are being held in the Fayette County Jail, each on a $10,000 cash only bond.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary in progress June 20. A woman reported she was home when an unknown female forced entry into her house through a first floor rear window. The woman said she confronted the unknown female who then ran and left through the front door. Another female was outside in a van and the woman said she took a photo of the van and license plate.

Officers later located the van in front of the Washington C.H. Municipal Court, with the two suspect females matching the woman’s description. Hurtt and Dunn were arrested by a deputy sheriff and taken to the Fayette County Jail. They were both released on bond.

A Fayette County grand jury handed down indictments for Hurtt and Dunn earlier this month. They were picked up on warrants Wednesday and will be arraigned Monday in the Fayette County Court of Common Pleas.

Dunn was convicted of breaking and entering in 2012 after she broke into a barn on Bloomingburg-New Holland Road. She was then sentenced to two years of community control but was later sent to prison for six months for violating the terms of that community control.
