Naked Woman Charged with Breaking and Entering after Being Discovered by Taunton Homeowner

A Taunton homeowner discovered a nude 22-year-old woman cooking breakfast in her kitchen Thursday morning, as reported by the Taunton Gazette. According to police, the woman, Katherine Lee Ferguson of Plymouth, and a male friend, Kyle Timmons of Taunton, broke into the home through a rear door. The two apparently knew that the homeowners were away for the night.

Taunton Patrolman Jeffrey Arruda was the first to respond to a call that came in around 10:30 a.m. reporting a breaking and entering at Newcomb Place, which he recognized as a the site of a prior burglary. Upon arriving, he saw a young man running from the building and being chased by an older man with a hammer, at which point he drew his weapon and ordered both men to stop. The older man, a relative of the homeowner, complied with Arruda, but the younger man, who turned out to be Timmons, was apprehended behind a nearby building.

Both Timmons and Ferguson were charged on several counts, including breaking and entering, putting a person in fear while breaking and entering, and malicious destruction of property over $250. Timmons was also under a restraining order which prevented him from entering the property again and was charged with a violation of that order. Timmons is being held on $500 bail and Ferguson under $250 bail. Both are due back in court for pretrial hearings on July 20.
