Kentucky State Police arrested a woman for second-degree burglary Wednesday after troopers were called about a weed eater being taken from a residence.

One witness told troopers they saw a black car with a woman putting the weed eater in the car, and they got the license plate number, according to her arrest citation.

The victim said the weed eater was inside their home. They also said another person was inside the home.

Police got an address from the license plate number and made contact with Jamie Nipper, 40, Ben Revees Road, Richmond. She first said she didn't know anything about the weed eater.

However, police found the weed eater and questioned Nipper more. She said another person told her to go to the victim's home and take the weed eater from the kitchen, the citation states.

Nipper entered the home through the living room, went into the kitchen and took the weed eater, the citation states.

Troopers asked the victims about the other woman, and they said she hadn't been at the residence for some time. The victims said they didn't know Nipper personally, but said that Nipper had been at the residence with the other woman.

The weed eater was returned to the victim.

Nipper was taken to the Madison County Detention Center and was released Thursday, according to online jail records.
