The woman approached the home, grabbed a giant package that was sitting on the porch, and ran back to the waiting vehicle.

It appeared the woman was wearing an ankle monitor on her left leg during the incident.

The suspect was perhaps a bit disappointed because the homeowners said there was only dog food inside the package.

The homeowner reported to ABC7 that suspect had been taken into custody. The suspect, who was on house arrest, will now spend the rest of her time in jail.
