April Pitts

A woman is in the Saline County Jail facing multiple charges stemming from the alleged burglary of a rural Saline County home early Friday morning.

According to the Saline County Sheriff’s Office, Robert Fellers woke up to strange noises at about 4:45 a.m. Friday morning. He initially assumed the noises were being made his wife returning home from work. Instead, Fellers discovered a strange woman inside the home, which is located in the 4900 block of N. Highway 81. The woman, who Fellers encountered in a hallway, claimed that the home belonged to her and her husband.

Fellers called the Sheriff’s Office after the woman, who said her name was “Apreal”, refused to leave. Upon arriving at the home, deputies found the woman hiding the basement. She had rummaged through through the home, found some clothes and changed into them. The woman also helped herself to a beer, a hot dog, and some potato chips while she was inside the home.

Saline County Sheriff Roger Soldan later identified the woman as April Pitts, 37.

Pitts was booked into the Saline County Jail on several requested charges including aggravated burglary, misdemeanor theft, criminal trespassing, interference with a law enforcement officer, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
