TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A woman has been arrested after she was accused of stealing both her mother's and her boyfriend's wallets.

According to a probable cause document, Cassondra Jones was arrested on Tuesday for stealing from her mother and her boyfriend. 

Tallahassee police said that they were called to a home on Warwick Street about a theft. When they arrived, they met with the victims, Jones' mother and Jones' boyfriend.

They both told police that Jones had stolen from them, stealing a cellphone and wallet from her mother and the wallet of her boyfriend. Jones was also there when police arrived.

The victims told them that all three of them share a home along with Jones' children. They said that Tuesday morning, Jones had confronted them about money which led to an argument.

After the argument, Jones took a pair of her boyfriend's pants and her mother's purse. She then ran into the bathroom and refused to come out. 

When she did come out, however, the victims noticed that their stuff was missing from the pants and purse. Once confronted about it, Jones took off, running out of the house.

Police were unable to make contact with Jones until they were called a second time about the incident.

When victims confronted her again, Jones denied taking their stuff. Even as police interviewed her separately and told her the victims would likely not press charges if their stuff was returned, Jones continued to deny the allegations. 

As the officer at the incident was finishing up taking a statement from Jones' mother, Jones approached her mother, whispered something in her ear, and then walked away.

The mother wasted no time in telling the officer what Jones told her. She said that Jones told her that if she and her boyfriend moved out by the end of the day, then she would return the stolen property.

Again, Jones denied what her mother was saying. 

With reason for suspicion and unable to find the stolen property, police arrested Jones. 

After the arrested, the probable cause document says that Jones got "extremely emotional" and yelled at the victims, saying that they were ruining her life and demanded that they drop the charges.

She then told them that the stolen property was in the pockets of a jacket she had been wearing when she left the house. She told them that the jacket was inside a home on Hutchinson Street but said the resident was no longer there. 

Jones was transported to Leon County Jail for booking. Her first appearance was on Wednesday morning and her bond was set at $5000.
