Christmas Present 83119 1280

ATHENS, Ala. (AP) – An Alabama woman who allegedly broke into a neighbor’s home and stole items from under the Christmas tree is now charged with burglary.

News outlets report that a homeowner told investigators that the woman was spotted kneeling between two hedges near the home’s back porch. Confronted, the woman then ran away toward her own residence.

Deputies found gifts, clothing and a debit card in the yard. A statement from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office says jewelry and loose change were found inside the home of the woman.

The 35-year-old woman was jailed on a burglary charge Sunday with bond set at $2,500.
