Joplin Woman Living In Fear Of Her Neighbors After They Allegedly Break Into Her Home

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

     A Joplin woman says she's terrified after her neighbor broke into her home and stole a number of valuable items.
     More shocking...it wasn't the first crime the suspect is accused of committing.

Tucked away in the heart of Joplin, a cozy little neighborhood.

Then, the unthinkable happens.
Ashley Raby, Victim: "never did we realize that they would break into their neighbor's house."
Ashley Raby and her boyfriend became friends with their neighbors, Nicolas Cutbirth and Abbey McNally.
Then, in the past few weeks, someone broke into their home.
Now, she lives in fear of what might happen next.
Raby: "I have not slept since Friday, I've had nightmares every night."
Captain Trevor Duncan, Joplin Police Department: "We've conducted search warrants at the residence, recovering stolen property, making new arrests whenever new crimes come to light,it's just kinda been an on-going issue for our department."
Since May 3rd, the list of alleged crimes includes two arrests for stolen property - three search warrants, locating a total of nearly $6,500 in stolen property.
The list goes on and on - 
And Raby is fed up.
Raby: "There's no way they should have been released."
May 12th - Cutbirth and McCally were arrested in a vehicle in front of their residence with a stolen AR-15 rifle, a BB gun, and other items - totaling $4,500.
Duncan: "It's just kinda a vicious cycle right now that I think everybody involved is just trying to put an end to and get a good resolution to where that will stop."
Duncan says they're fighting their own obstacles, and while he can't speak for the prosecutor, he knows they're fighting challenges as well.
Raby: "Their hands are tied to a point, but I feel like more could have been done. I hope they go away for a very very long time."
     Police say they're continuing to build a case against Cutbirth and McNally.
