LONE TREE — A Muscatine woman faces a number of charges after Johnson County deputies responded to a burglary in rural Lone Tree.

Deputies were called at 12:40 a.m. Tuesday to a home on Highway 22 SE outside Lone Tree by a passerby, according to the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. Deputies spoke with a woman who said her sister, Corina, was inside the residence.

Deputies searched the home and the property and located a woman, later identified as Corina P. Campbell, 34, hiding in the grass near the scene. Deputies searched a vehicle nearby and found Campbell’s ID, items belonging to the homeowners, burglary tools and a wood puzzle box containing deputies suspected was marijuana and meth, authorities said.

When Campbell was booked and searched at the Johnson County Jail, jail staff found four Alprazolam pills on her, for which she did not have a valid prescription.

Campbell faces charges of third-degree burglary, possession of burglar’s tools, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a prescription drug, providing false information, possession of drug paraphernalia and driving while barred as a habitual offender.
