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.
