The girlfriend of one of the men charged in two home invasion robberies in October has been arrested and charged with assisting her boyfriend while he was wanted by police.
20-year-old Sierra White, girlfriend of Adrian Anthony, was arrested Monday for allegedly housing Anthony at her home in the 3400 block of Guilford Avenue on November 29th and 30th. A warrant for Anthony's arrest was issued on November 18th. Anthony is facing charges stemming from the two home invasion robberies on East 79th Street and Spring Mill Road.
According to a probably cause affadavit, an IMPD detective spoke with Whtie on November 9th and November 26th, asking if she had heard from Anthony. Both times, White told the detective she had not. While conducting surveillance on White's home on November 30th, officers saw Anthony leave the home. Anthony was taken into custody a short time later.
The IMPD detective returned to White's home on December 3rd. White said Anthony was at her home on November 30th and stayed for at least two hours. However, court documents cite phone records which show that Anthony was in the area of White's home from November 29th through the 30th.
White said she did not notify police that Anthony was at her home because "he is a good man." White faces a felony charge of assisting a criminal and is expected to appear in court later this week.
White is now the 12th person arrested in connection with the October robberies. Anthony also faces charges for a separate murder on November 27th.
