Gipson 10 17 hcjMADISONVILLE, Ky. (10/17/17) — A 32-year-old Madisonville woman was arrested for allegedly prying open a back door with a knife and entering another woman’s home Monday morning.

According to a Madisonville Police Department arrest report, the resident at Whittington Drive notified authorities at 9:26 a.m. that she “could hear someone trying to make entry into the residence.”

After arriving, the officer noted seeing the back door swing shut, and the home dweller running out the front door “in a panic,” saying, “(the uninvited woman) was inside.”

Officer Leighann Stroud reported finding Krystal L. Gipson standing in the living room, according to the report. Gipson admitted to making entry.

The homeowner had been in the bathroom with her son, telling police that she saw Gipson enter the back door holding a pocketknife. MPD listed there were several pry marks found near the door latch consistent with the blade.

MPD said the resident at the home knew Gipson.

Gipson was charged with first-degree criminal trespassing. She was listed as being held in Hopkins County Jail this afternoon on $2,000 cash bond.
