A West Manheim Township woman stole several bottles of wine and a small amount of cash from two of her neighbors, police said.
Tammy S. Myers, 52, of 72 Heritage Drive, is locked up on $10,000 bail, charged with three counts each of burglary, theft and criminal trespass.
Police were called to the home of one of Myers' neighbors, Tracey Weih, about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, township police said.
Weih called 911 after returning home and hearing suspicious noises inside. She told responding officers she looked around her house, then heard a knock on the door. It was Myers, who told Weih she saw a black man running from the house, according to police.
Weih also told officers she found Myers inside her home on July 19, hiding in a bedroom with money she'd taken from another part of Weih's home, police said. Weih walked Myers home that day and didn't call 911, police said.
Weih gave officers a card Myers had sent to her, apologizing for the July 19 incident, police said.
When officers arrested Myers on Wednesday, they found $42 in her shirt and she admitted she'd stolen it from a bedroom drawer in the home of a different neighbor, police said.
She also admitted to stealing several bottles of wine from Weih's basement on several occasions, police said.
Police said they suspect Myers is responsible for at least one other burglary in the neighborhood. Anyone with information is asked to call investigating Officer Craig Snyder at 632-7059, ext. 105.
