It seems to be a case full of contradictions: she’s wearing sunglasses at night while committing a crime in the pursuit of religious items.
The home security cameras of a Cleburne, Texas, couple caught a strange woman brazenly stealing crosses off of their front porch early Monday morning, KDFW-TV reported.
“It’s almost like she’s shopping, you know,” said Aleisha Jones, one of the homeowners. “She’s looking, and, ‘Oh, do I want this one do I want that one do I want this one.’”
Jones and her husband, Kevin, said they were missing four or five crosses from their front porch, along with a pair of their son’s shoes.
Why anyone would so boldly nick religious paraphernalia — in front of plainly-visible cameras — baffled the family.
“Shocked!” said Jones. “The first thing that stuck out to me was the sunglasses on the head at 3:45 in the morning.”
Detectives are using the video to build a case, KDFW-TV reported, and the Joneses said they’ve already been getting tips on Facebook as to the suspect’s possible identity.
“We sleep 10 feet from the front porch,” Jones said, “and I just feel completely violated and scared.”
