LARKSVILLE — An intoxicated woman who accused her ex-boyfriend of being unfaithful after finding a box of condoms later trashed his bedroom, stole clothes and pornographic materials, and urinated on a floor in a holding cell, according to charges.

Police allege Yana Guitson, 21, of Beech Street, Edwardsville, stormed into the Washington Avenue residence of Matthew Otto and ransacked his bedroom just after 10 p.m., damaging a television and stealing items.

Otto told police his Social Security card, piercing jewelry, five shirts, three pairs of pants, four pornographic DVDs and a magazine were stolen, court records say.

Otto told police he ended his relationship with Guitson about a week ago.

According to a criminal complaint:

Guitson called Destiney Dileo asking if Otto was cheating on her because she found a box of condoms. Guitson asked Dileo to call her after Otto left for work.

Dileo told police Guitson arrived at the Larksville residence and stormed inside, ran upstairs and trashed Otto’s bedroom before leaving in a vehicle driven by Timothy Morgan.

Morgan told police Guitson was intoxicated and asked for a ride to Otto’s place of employment, Ali Baba, in Wilkes-Barre. Morgan discouraged Guitson from going to Ali Baba, but instead gave her a ride to Otto’s residence. Morgan stayed outside in his vehicle as Guitson went inside.

Guitson told Morgan she needed to get her belongings from Otto’s residence.

Police contacted Guitson who later arrived at the police station but refused to speak with officers.

When police informed Guitson she was under arrest, she began yelling and asked to be stunned by a Taser. She punched an officer in the chest and had to be physically placed in a holding cell.

Once in a cell, Guitson urinated on the floor and used her hands to wipe urine on cell bars. She kicked and punched walls and repeatedly jumped on a bench in an attempt to break it.

Guitson was arraigned Thursday by District Judge Alexandra Kokura Kravitz in Luzerne County Central Court on charges of burglary, criminal trespass, theft, harassment, disorderly conduct and institutional vandalism. She was released on $25,000 unsecured bail.
