Woman charged with burglary
Court records indicate she is homeless
Joy Bean, 43, is charged with burglary, theft and criminal damage to property.
Shortly after midnight Thursday, May 7, Waupaca police responded to a 911 call reporting a burglary in process.
When officers arrived, they found damage to a garage door and a woman inside a car in the garage.
Several times, the officers ordered the women to exit the car, but she reportedly ignored them.
According to the criminal complaint, the woman had tools and coins that belonged to the residents of the house.
Bean reportedly told police she was looking for keys to the house so she could have a place to stay.
On May 7, Judge Raymond Huber set a $2,000 cash bond as a condition of Bean’s release.
At her initial appearance, Bean refused to speak with a public defender and said she wanted to represent herself.
She said she wanted a speedy trial.
On May 18, Judge Troy Nielsen amended the cash bond to a $5,000 signature bond, which will become effective at noon Wednesday, May 20.
At the time of her arrest in Waupaca, Bean was on probation.
Brown County Circuit Court placed Bean on three years of probation for two counts of misdemeanor bail jumping and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
She is scheduled for arraignment in Waupaca County on June 16.
