Report: Ga. woman uses son to break into neighbor's home using doggie door

Posted: Updated:
CONYERS, GA (WCSC) -

Investigators arrested a 25-year-old Georgia woman accused of using her young son to break into a neighbor's house using a doggie door.

The Rockdale County Sheriff's Office charged Cheryl Keele of Conyers with burglary. Officials with the sheriff's office say Keele was given a $25,000 bond.

On Tuesday afternoon, a woman and her daughter contacted the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office in reference to several items that had been missing from her house over the past few months.

The victim said she would leave for work and would lock all the windows and doors, but when she arrived home on several occasions, she would find the rear door unlocked.

She eventually purchased a surveillance video camera in August and installed it in her home.

The woman said on Nov. 30, she came home and noticed that her back door was unlocked. The following day she also discovered someone had taken the surveillance camera.

Investigators say the victim was able to view the video footage which was uploaded to her email account.

According to the sheriff's office, the video showed Keele's child enter the house through a doggie door and unlock the rear door to allow Keele to enter the home. Officials with the sheriff's office say Keele's child is around 5 or 6 years old.

Authorities say Keele entered the home twice that day.

On Wednesday, investigators arrested Keele at her home where deputies also located the victim's missing camera.
