Police investigating alarm find burglary suspect in bed

A Bellefonte woman is in Centre County Correctional Facility, accused of burglarizing a Liberty Township home early Sunday morning.

State police responded to an alarm at the home about 4:15 a.m. and found a broken window, police said.

Troopers found 27-year-old Nicole Lynn Daugherty in a bed after searching the building, according to the criminal complaint. Daugherty smelled of alcohol and appeared to be dazed, police said.

She told police she had been at a party earlier but could not remember how she got in the house or anything else, according to the criminal complaint. The owner of the home was not present.

Daugherty is also charged with criminal trespass and criminal mischief. She is being held on $10,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
