25-year-old Mason Marina stole food from his neighboring roommate, Jessica Hopkins, at their shared residence on Broadway on the afternoon of January 23rd. When the officers arrived, Hopkins advised them she rents two rooms inside a residence that three other people share in addition to her. She explained that since she does not share her two rooms with anyone, she usually locks them before leaving. However, a previous incident that resulted in the door being removed from its hinges hindered her from securing it completely before going to work. So, she placed the door against the frame with a note stating not to enter before reiterating this to her roommates. Then, when she went to work, she checked her cameras, which showed Marina pushing the door away to enter her room. Marina then grabbed various food items and began eating them. Hopkins told officers that Marina was prohibited from being in the room or eating her food. She then explained how they had prior intimate relations. Officers identified Marina from previous incidents with his information attached to them. After reviewing the video, they requested a warrant for his arrest, and then Marina was taken into custody for burglary.
Mason J Marina was booked into the Metro Nashville Jail on February 1st, charged with felony burglary. A judicial commissioner set his bond at $3,000.
