NEWARK, Del. – A Delaware woman received a strange phone call at work on Wednesday. A burglar called to let her know that the dog had been let out.

Allegedly, Sara Sheats-McDonald broke into a home in New Castle County Wednesday morning. But in the process she let out the homeowner’s dog.

Apparently this caused the 33-year old to be so concerned for the pet’s welfare that she alerted the owner to the status of the dog being outside.

Upon receiving the call, the unidentified homeowner called the police.

When police arrived at the home, Sheats-McDonald was still present. She was enjoying the comfort of the home with lit candles, a slice of cake and a glass of milk.

While the suspect was taken without incident, she later kicked an officer who was putting her in a police cruiser.

She is charged with burglary, theft and offensive touching of a police officer.

This has to be one of the wackiest burglaries I've ever heard of! At least she was concerned about the dog.

Nothing ever ceases to amaze me!
But she did have concern for the animal well being. :)
