Cops: Woman Donned Mustache To Rob Neighbors!
MSNBC.COM - A woman in Salt Lake City repeatedly stole from her neighbors, donning an oversized man's suit, a beanie and a fake mustache in an attempt to disguise herself while she entered their home, police said.
The Salt Lake City Tribune reported that the 31-year-old woman's disguise didn't fool anyone for long, though: On Thursday, she was charged with two counts of burglary and one count of theft for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars.
According to police, the victims had notice several thousand dollars in cash missing from a box in their house, The Tribune reported on Thursday. They checked the box a second time and found another $9,000 missing.
None of the people involved in the case were identified. It was not clear why the victims were holding such a large amount of cash in their house.
The victims had only given their house key to one person, a neighbor, and decided to set up a trap to see if she was the burglar, said The Tribune. They put a small amount of cash in the box and set up security cameras, court documents state.
The security footage captured the woman in a very large man's suit, a beanie cap, and a fake mustache using the key to get into the home, the documents show.
Salt Lake City police searched her house and found her disguise inside, according to The Tribune.
All of her charges are second-degree felonies.
