A Fayette County man was arrested Saturday afternoon by the Henry County Sheriff’s Department after violating an order of protection and burglarizing an Oak Haven Road home in Buchanan.
Demario Antoine Jones, 34, of Somerville had previously assaulted the resident of the home and broke into her prior home, resulting in him being arrested for violating the order of protection.
According to an incident report by Sheriff’s Sgt. Clyde Sulcer, the alleged victim called 911 and said that Jones was inside her home, had blocked one of her cameras and entered through an unlocked back door.
Sheriff’s Deputy Britany Nance and off-duty Deputy Keith Fertig, regularly a dispatcher for the Sheriff’s Department, found Jones at a Buchanan restaurant on Highway 79 northeast of Paris and arrested him there, Sulcer’s report indicated.
It was determined that Jones took $61 in cash and several credit cards, identification cards and an iPhone from the victim’s purse while inside her home. Sulcer wrote in the report that Jones also went into the victim’s vehicle and took some paperwork before fleeing the scene.
Jones was taken into custody at 12:35 p.m. and charged with aggravated burglary, theft over $1,000 and violation of an order of protection, according to an arrest report.
Sulcer’s report indicated that Jones would be given additional charges for auto burglary and violation of an order of protection.
He is scheduled to appear today in Henry County General Sessions Court. His bond was set at $70,000.
In unrelated incidents:
• A Puryear woman was arrested Friday night for multiple felonies after she allegedly used a vehicle to run somebody off the road.
The alleged victim contacted the Department regarding Michelle L. Thompson, 57, 113 S. McDonald St., ramming the back of his vehicle multiple times with a red Ford truck on Conyersville Road and Morris Road until he began driving through a field to get away from her.
An incident report by Sheriff’s Sgt. Gary Carroll indicated the victim was able to get back onto Morris Road and Thompson continued to hit his vehicle with her truck until they wound up driving through the front yard of a home on Morris Road, causing an estimated $700 worth of damages.
Both vehicles came to rest in a field next to the residence after Thompson caused one final collision.
In his report, Carroll wrote that the victim said he ran up the street to get away and looked back to see Thompson digging around in his vehicle, eventually running away on foot. The keys to the car were said to be missing as well.
Sheriff’s Deputy Craig Barrow found Thompson laying down, trying to hide, by another house on Morris Road.
According to Carroll, Thompson apparently told Carroll that the victim had “got into it” with a different person that was the person who went chasing after him.
Carroll wrote in his report that he believed that other person was not involved and Thompson refused to say anything else after he told her that.
Thompson was arrested at 6 p.m. and charged with aggravated assault, two counts of vandalism, burglary, filing false reports and leaving the scene of an accident.
She is scheduled to appear today in General Sessions Court. Her bond was set at $40,000.
The victim’s keys were later found inside the red Ford truck after both vehicles involved were towed according to Carroll.

Harris, 23, of Owensboro, Ky., were both charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, manufacture or deliver, possession of a firearm while during the commission of a felony and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
