A burglary suspect was arrested without incident at her rural Norwalk home early Thursday morning.

Penny S. Goostree, 46, of 321 Gibbs Road, was arrested on a Norwalk Municipal Court burglary warrant about 1:15 a.m. She was charged with a fourth-degree felony in connection with an incident Monday in the 1200 block of South Norwalk Road.

Goostree went to the female victim's residence because Goostree's husband's truck was parked there, Norwalk Law Director Stuart O'Hara said.

The suspect kicked in the front door, entered the home and did some damage inside, O'Hara said.

"She was confronted by a dog and took off," O'Hara said.

If convicted, Goostree faces six to 18 months behind bars.

Goostree, who reportedly knows the victim, has no prior criminal history. She must post 10 percent of a $5,000 bond before being released from the Huron County Jail.

But in defense of all husbands, most don't have fleas or cough up hairballs, I have a great wife & dog..


I taught my cat how to use the toilet. Bad move. The water bill went sky high because he likes to watch the water swirl when he flushes. Now the lid (TOP LID) stays down, I have a chain pull for flushing and he's back to litterbox status.

This is a case where they should just give her a warning, make her promise to pay any damages, and let her go on her way. Some things do not belong in the court system.


Oh and I know this woman! She is a wonderful sweet woman until you piss her off! Go Penny!


Anger is no excuse for breaking the law. If the homeowner had shot and killed her since she kicked in the front door, what would you all be saying then? She could have just knocked on the door and asked for her hubby and took it from there. If the "deed" had already been done you can't undo it so just get a divorce! You never know the outcome of any type of violence.

So, it sounds as if the general consensus is that Men are the only cheaters. That is funny. All of the married couples that I know that have had cheating, more than half were the woman cheating. Just Saying.


What she should have done was either take the plug wires out or go home, get her keys and take his truck. It's not stealing, they are married. I feel sorry for the rest of the family. alot of people hurt because he made a bad choice.
