Woman suspected of breaking into condo
Steamboat Springs — A 31-year-old Milner woman was arrested Wednesday after police believe she broke into a condo and did significant damage.
Mary K. Adams faces charges of felony possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), felony first-degree criminal trespass, felony criminal mischief and possession of drug paraphernalia.
On Wednesday, police were contacted by a man who went to clean a condo at The Rockies, according to an arrest affidavit.
The man said the deadbolt at the condo was locked, which was unusual. He knocked on the door, and Adams eventually came to the door and said she had just gotten out of the shower.
At one point, the cleaner said Adams was flushing things down the toilet, and the cleaner took the things. The cleaner gave police a paper plate with a syringe and a white powder that police later determined was methamphetamine, according to the affidavit.

Adams told police she had permission from the owner’s son to be there.
The owner told police she did not have permission to be there, according to the affidavit.
Police found the condo was in disarray.
The carpet in the master bedroom had been pulled up, there were carpet stains, a cigarette burn in the kitchen counter and dark red splatter on the kitchen ceiling and backsplash, according to the affidavit.
Police found the middle of the front door had a shoe print, and the door was cracked along the side. The door frame was also damaged.
In November, a traffic stop led to Adams being arrested on suspicion of possession of heroin and methamphetamine.
