An Angelina County judge has found a Lufkin woman guilty of trashing an apartment as an act of revenge after she was served with an eviction notice.

Judge Paul White will determine a punishment for Joshe Johnson, 23, on June 16, following a pre-sentence investigation.

According to an arrest report, police were dispatched to Pershing Place Apartments in the 700 block of Schuller Street on Sept. 4, in reference to a criminal mischief. An officer spoke to the property owner, who said she had been renting the apartment to Johnson and had evicted her. She said Johnson came to the apartment on Sept. 3 to collect her belongings.

"The thermostat was busted," Owner Terri Allen said in court on Wednesday. "The dishwasher was pulled out of the wall. The only thing holding it in was two screws.There was trash in the sink. The medicine cabinet was busted. There was multiple ceiling lights that were busted, with glass everywhere. There was damage done to the bottom of the door."

Johnson's damages totaled $4,405.

She faces up to 10 years in prison.
