A woman DeKalb County deputies say rode a stolen horse to burglarize a store is currently only facing alcohol-related charges, but more charges may be on the way.
Sheriff Jimmy Harris said his office got a call about an intoxicated woman stealing merchandise from a store at Hammonds Crossroads Saturday evening. Deputies and Fyffe police responded and say they found her carrying the stolen items. Authorities also found a horse tied outside the store and believe she rode it there. The horse was returned to its owner who did not press charges.
Deputies say the woman, 45-year-old Christine Saunders of Fyffe, was drunk. They say they found beer in a shopping bag tied to the horse.
Saunders was charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage. Harris said his department is working with the store owner on other charges. Saunders was booked into the DeKalb County Detention Center.
