It is not clear what she was doing in the basement, but whatever it was led to a charge of burglary

MCDC BOOKING PHOTO - After being found in the basement of a broken-into Brooklyn neighborhood home, 35-year-old Krista Lee Rossi is now facing a felony charge of burglary. An alert Brooklyn neighbor, noticing that a nearby home's windows had been broken, called the 9-1-1 Center to report it on Monday afternoon, November 6.

At 2:58 p.m., officers arrived at the home – near S.E. 7th Avenue and Haig Street – and spoke with the neighbor who reported the damage.

They did, indeed, find multiple broken windows at the home – and learned from neighbors that no one should have been in the residence.

"Officers searched the home with the assistance of a police K9 team, located a suspect in the basement, and took her into custody, assisted by the Bureau's Detective Division's Burglary Detail," reported Portland Police spokesman Sgt. Chris Burley.

The suspect, Burley told THE BEE, was identified as 35-year-old Krista Lee Rossi, who was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center at 8:06 p.m. that evening on charges of Burglary in the First Degree, and Criminal Mischief in the Second Degree.

The following day, at her arraignment, the presiding Multnomah County Court judge dropped the Criminal Mischief charge, relating to the broken windows. She remains in custody at Inverness Jail, however, in lieu of $50,000 bail, on a Class A Felony Burglary charge.
