An Alabama woman who allegedly broke into a neighbor’s home and stole items from under the Christmas tree was charged with burglary, news outlets reported.

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, said a statement from the Limestone County Sheriff’s Office said, and jewelry and loose change inside the home of the woman.

The 35-year-old woman was jailed on a burglary charge Sunday with bond set at $2,500. Court records don’t show whether she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
