A cleaning lady is in trouble. Police say she was taking out more than the just the trash.

The Burgin police department charged the woman after investigating missing files.

They say 53-year-old Rosie Phillips was taking files from a pending drug investigation from the mayor's office when she was supposed to be cleaning it.

Police say Phillips was specifically taking documents in connection to Ron Hockinson.

They cited her for hindering prosecution and tampering with records, a felony.

Police set up surveillance to catch Phillips red handed, after suspecting her possible involvement. They placed a hidden camera in the mayor's office and planted fake documents.
