Alleged car thief caught with diary of her crimes

SEATTLE, Wash. - If you're going to be stupid enough to keep a diary of your crimes, you might not want to have that diary around when you get arrested.

The diary in question was discovered after an early morning car chase in north Seattle on  December 13.

The chase ended when the suspect, 28-year-old Tiffany McDonough,  crashed a stolen car into a stop sign.

Inside the car, police found a laundry list of property belonging to her victims: stolen mail, laptops, backpacks, gloves, flashlights and other burglar tools.

Seattle Police also found a personal journal belonging to the alleged thief.

According to court documents, she wrote "...I'm driving a stolen blk on blk Benz from Everett to Seattle..." One entry talked about a "...theft of a purse with credit cards...," taking "$1200" out of an account, as well as a "...$300 purchase at Walmart...," using a stolen credit card.

McDonough, of Seattle, now faces charges of burglary, car prowling, possession of a stolen vehicle and eluding police. She is accused of breaking into at least five cars and one house. The owner of that house says most of his belongings taken from his house were never recovered.

Police say McDonough admitted she was high on Oxycontin when she was arrested. Hearing that, at least two of her victims expressed a certain amount of sympathy for her and hope she gets the help she needs.
