29-year-old Sophia Kelley was booked this week after police say she keyed her roommate’s Mercedes-Benz. Police spoke with Britney Moya, who said that on April 28th, she returned to her home on Lincoya Bay Drive and saw Kelley there. Kelley was Moya’s roommate who was given notice to move out of the house by then. Moya went upstairs to her room and heard Kelley leave the house about 20-30 minutes later. When Moya left the house about an hour later to get her car washed, she saw deep key marks down the entire length of the car. Police spoke with the neighbor, who said she saw Kelley outside packing her car up, noticed the car was keyed, and even texted her boyfriend about what she saw. The witness showed officers the time-stamped message to her boyfriend. Kelley drove off only minutes before Moya came outside. The timeline of events gave officers probable cause that Kelley committed the felony vandalism. The damage to the vehicle is clearly greater than $2,500, according to police.
