A Broken Arrow woman is behind bars in Creek County, accused of burglarizing a Sapulpa woman's home, not once, but twice in 24 hours.
Deputies say 32-year-old Michelle D'eath broke into the home near South 81st and 81st West Avenue one night last week and then again the next day, which is when she got caught red-handed.
The victim, Bobbiesue Marshall wasn't home at the time, but her nephew was mowing her lawn and caught D'eath pulling bags of stuff out of the house.
She told him she was with the bank and was cleaning out the home because it was foreclosed on.
The night before, neighbors noticed an SUV parked at Marshall's house, but didn't think it was suspicious, because it was similar to Marshall's own vehicle.
That night, deputies say D'eath got away with a guitar and two guns.
But greed brought her back the next day.
When Marshall's nephew confronted her, D'eath tried to say she was with a bank, but Marshall's nephew knew it was a lie and called police.
According to the arrest report, D'eath tried to drive away, but only made it a block before police caught up.
Inside her car, they found Marshall's family photos, antique heirlooms, even her social security card. In all, she pulled more than $4,000 worth of belongings out of Marshall's home.
Deputies also found meth and drug paraphernalia in the SUV, and yet D'eath maintained her story that she was with the bank and simply cleaning out a house that had been foreclosed on.
Deputies then figured out her vehicle's tag was expired and that D'eath had illegally taped a 2013 sticker to her tag to make it look current.
Marshall told FOX23 she thinks D'eath sold the guitar and guns and doesn't expect to see them again, but she was able to recover most of the sentimental items D'eath tried to steal.
D'eath now faces a long list of charges, including drugs and drug paraphernalia, second-degree burglary, and affixing an improper license plate to her vehicle.
