A Feb. 28 noise complaint turned out to be something more for officers responding to a call at the Verde Ridge Apartments in the 100 block of Verde Ridge Road. The complainant said the neighbors in apartment A were making too much noise.
While one officer went to knock on the door, two others stood on a hill observing what was going on in the apartment, through a kitchen window.
As Officer James T. Keane knocked on the door announcing he was a police officer, Cpl. Brent Hudspeth and Sgt. Jeremy Duran could see someone inside trying to hide and dispose of various bottles and plastic cups sitting on the counter.
“As I continued to knock, the other officers saw a female, later identified as Amanda Burnworth, moving the red ‘Solo’ cups and bottles in a way consistent with that of someone who is trying to hide or dispose of them,” Keane said in his report.
They also observed another occupant of the apartment, Kevin Carpenter, attempting to get away from the scene through the backyard.
Eventually, a man named Kyle Elliott opened the door, and officers in the report said they could smell marijuana coming from inside the apartment, as well as on Elliott. They could also smell alcohol on Elliott’s breath.
