Police were called Feb. 25 to a residence in the 800 block of Glenn Terrace Road on a report of a domestic. When an officer arrived, a woman refused to open the door and then shut off the lights. Police determined she had felony warrants out, so approached the house again. They reported seeing the woman peek out of a second-floor window, but nobody answered the door when police knocked. A man then arrived at the home and told the woman to meet police. Subsequently, Deann L. Green, 26, was arrested for six felony warrants for auto theft.
