Odessa, TX – Odessa Police have made an arrest in connection to an incident that began on June 20 in North Odessa. Kristopher Anderson has been charged with Burglary of Habitation (second-degree felony), Stalking (third-degree felony), Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon (class A misdemeanor), and Possession of Marijuana (class B misdemeanor).
Anderson, a 30-year-old man, was arrested and booked into the Ector County Law Enforcement Center on June 24. He has four bonds totaling $43,000. The reported burglary occurred on June 20 at the Woodview Apartments located at 4330 N. Grandview Ave.
Corina Ornelas reported to the Odessa Police Department that while she was out of town, a man identified as Anderson, broke into her apartment. Ornelas stated he wasn’t her boyfriend, but they had been romantically involved over the last four months and she decided to end the relationship.
Ornelas reported to officers that Anderson had been harassing her by calling her more than 88 times and knowing her location without any communication with him. She had left town using her friend’s vehicle, and during that time Anderson called her nine times on Facebook messenger. According to the report, she replied to him to “Leave me alone.”
Anderson reportedly called her eight more times and then texted her “You might wanna get home soon.” Ornelas stated she blocked him on Facebook messenger. After receiving multiple calls from a “no caller ID” number, Ornelas answered one of the phone calls and Anderson told her she needed to return home because her property was messed up. Once at her residence, Ornelas found that her kitchen window had been broken, along with the screen torn off. She found her refrigerator to be open and everything thawed out. She stated her bedroom and bathroom had been ransacked and her underwear and a gun case were taken.
Ornelas changed her phone number and blocked Anderson on all social media. She boarded up her kitchen window, but on June 21 she saw her handgun case had been returned and left on her chair next to the front porch and the boards were moved, but she was unsure if he had made entry into her apartment.
On June 22, Ornelas stated she returned to her residence and found a handwritten note on her front door, which Anderson apologized for letting his emotions get the best of him and asked her for a second chance to make their relationship work. Ornelas ignored the note and didn’t contact Anderson.
At midnight on June 23, Anderson returned to Ornelas’ residence and started knocking on the front door. Ornelas stated she didn’t answer the door and after 45 minutes she checked outside and found roses sitting on the chair next to the front door. Ornelas provided photos of the text messages and hundreds of phone calls from Anderson that are harassing in nature, along with the handwritten letter in which he apologized for his actions, according to the police affidavit.
