Stephanie L. O’Connor, 48, of Monroe City is being held in the Randolph County Jail without bond after an incident Tuesday afternoon.
Police say they were called to a report of a woman with an AR-15 style rifle and a bag of ammunition, behaving in an aggravated manner and making threats, in the area of North Main and Court Streets, just one block away from Monroe City Junior High School.
By the time officers arrived, the suspect had returned to her residence and was yelling.
Neighboring residences were evacuated and traffic stopped in the area.
Eventually officers were able to make contact with O’Connor and take her into custody, charging her with unlawful use of a weapon and peace disturbance.
