A day after she was arrested on stalking charges, a 54-year-old Troutman woman was again charged after she drove by the victim’s residence, in violation of a court order, said Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell.
Melinda Brown Little of Scottsman Drive, Troutman, was arrested on a felony stalking charge as well as two misdemeanor counts of stalking and one count each of second-degree trespass and cyberstalking, both misdemeanors. Bond was set at $25,000.
In a press release, Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell said the case dates back to July 2 when a report was filed concerning stalking and trespassing. Detective Sgt. Katie Harwell of the Special Victims Unit began an investigation.
During that investigation, the release stated, Harwell obtained statements from the victims, in which they reported Little stalked them and trespassed on their property. She was arrested on stalking and trespassing charges in 2017, and since that time, she has continued to harass, stalk and trespass at various times, Campbell said.
Harwell obtained arrest warrants and charged Little with the misdemeanor stalking, trespassing and cyberstalking counts. She was arrested July 8 and received a $3,000 bond from a magistrate.
She posted bond and was released. A condition of the bond was that she not go around or harass the victims, Campbell said.
Around 8:43 a.m. the next day, she drove by the victim’s residence, the release stated.
Harwell then obtained the felony warrant and Little was again arrested Friday and received the $25,000 bond.
