In another case, Tina Marie Alford, 47, 401 Farmer St. faces commercial burglary charges after her arrest Friday when employees coming to work at the Merit Health Clinic, 2100 U.S. 61 North found her in the building. Alford reportedly had some items taken from doctors’ offices in the building. She was being held in the Warren County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bond.
