Neighbors in Maunie got into it late Tuesday night over an electrical box according to the White County Sheriff’s Department. A deputy was dispatched to the area just before midnight when 30 year old Charley Buchanan called authorities saying there was a small group of individuals outside her home yelling and attempting to break in. The deputy found one of the women, 40 year old Tabitha Steele on Washington Street near the railroad tracks. Steele told the deputy Buchanan had taken an electrical box that attaches to the outside of a residence from a property Steele owns a few days ago. She went on to say she had spoken to Buchanan recently and Buchanan said she’d return it. Steele alleges Buchanan believed the box belonged to her because it came from a residence where the electric was in Buchanan’s mother’s name. The deputy says in his report he tried several times to contact Buchanan at her home unsuccessfully. Steele signed a complaint and gave a written statement alleging theft.
