Camden woman charged during burglary investigation

A Camden woman is facing a charge of obstructing governmental operations related to an incident that occurred while police were investigating an alleged robbery.

Heather N. Harvey, 34, of Camden, was cited on May 16.

According to a police report, the Camden Police Department was called to a residence in the 3300 block of Ivory Heights on a report of residential burglary last Tuesday morning.

The responding officer knocked on the door of the residence where the alleged burglary occurred, but when no one came to the door, he asked several women standing nearby whether they'd seen anyone trying to get into the residence, an apartment. A woman told him she had observed another woman, later identified as Harvey, "banging" on the door, according to police.

Additional officers arrived on scene and an employee of the apartment complex unlocked the door of the residence in question, the report states. Harvey was inside, and declined to share her name with an officer, who told her if she did not give her name, she would be arrested, according to the report. Harvey declined again to give her name, the report states.

The officer arrested Harvey, and on the way to his police vehicle, she gave her name and date of birth. According to the report, she also shared with him that she had a failure to appear warrant out.

The officer ran Harvey's information through dispatch and learned that the law enforcement agency holding the warrant on Harvey did not want to extradite her.

Harvey was charged, cited and released by CPD.

Court records indicate that the failure to appear warrant is related to an alleged probation violation by Harvey.

Harvey was charged last October with possession of a controlled substance in Saline County. She pleaded guilty to the charge and was sentenced to 24-months probation. Prosecutors allege Harvey violated her probation between the months of January and April this year.
