CLAYTON — A girl that asked for money to have her car repaired went on a rampage after her mother refused to give her the cash.

The 20-year-old girl did extensive damage to a pair of vehicles, a motorcycle, her mother’s residence and was involved in a hit-and-run accident. She also assaulted her mother during her tantrum that eventually earned her a trip to the county jail.

On Tuesday, March 14 Clayton Police responded to the 6300 block of Riverbend Drive to locate a wanted female subject that Dayton Police were attempting to locate for felonious assault and menacing. The female also had an active warrant through Dayton.

Dispatch advised the female was possibly heading back to the Riverbend address to do more property damage after she had assaulted her mother and had damaged a vehicle. When officers arrived they observed a Chevy truck parked in the street in front of the residence with all of its windows shattered with glass lying on the pavement. There were also numerous tire tracks where a vehicle had driven through the yard along with a damaged light post, several trash cans knocked over and several decorative bricks displaced from a mulch bed.

The officers found a partially opened window on the home with a fresh handprint on the exterior glass. Officers found the front door unlocked and announced themselves as police officers as they entered. No one was found inside and nothing seemed out of place except for a window screen that had been removed from a basement window.

About an hour later police were dispatched back to the residence and met with the homeowner. A back window had blinds torn down that had not been disturbed when officers were there earlier. Several items inside the residence were also broken including antiques. A motorcycle in the garage had extensive damage to the body. A semiautomatic handgun was stolen from a bedroom with a loaded magazine.

The homeowner stated her daughter wanted money to repair a tire on her car but she did not give her the money. A short time later a neighbor called to inform her that all of the windows on her friend’s truck had been smashed. She said her daughter then went to work and tried to smash all the windows on her car using a sledgehammer she had taken from the bed of the truck. She also said she had been involved in a fight with her daughter and sustained injuries.

After the fight her daughter left but returned and rammed her car into the side of her vehicle. At that time a male subject known to police to have several warrants was with her daughter. Police asked the homeowner to call her daughter and put her on speaker phone. When she answered the mother asked why she had destroyed the house. The daughter admitted to breaking items in the house as well as damaging the truck as officers listened to the conversation.

While on the scene a Montgomery County deputy called the homeowner to inform her that a vehicle registered to her had been involved in a hit-and-run accident earlier in the day. Officers told the homeowner to call immediately if her daughter returned to the residence.

Two hours later police were dispatched back to the home where the daughter was breaking windows on the residence. Sheriff’s deputies also responded. When Clayton officers arrived deputies were handcuffing the daughter and a male subject. A beige Honda with significant front end damage was parked in front of the home.

Imari S. Burton, 20, of Clayton, was arrested on a warrant issued by Dayton Police. She admitted to punching a window on the residence and to damaging the truck and some of the items in the home, but denied taking the handgun. Burton was released to Dayton Police, which also charged her with her with felonious assault.

D’Shaun L. Mccandless, 22, of Dayton 45417, was arrested on a Clayton warrant and another warrant issued by the Ohio State Patrol. He was transported to the Montgomery County Jail. The Honda was towed to Clayton Police Department and secured inside until a search warrant could be obtained to possibly locate the stolen handgun.
