SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Police say a Salt Lake City woman wore a fake mustache to disguise herself as a man while stealing from her neighbors.

Salt Lake City police say the 31-year-old was charged with two counts of burglary and one count of theft Thursday.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports the woman’s neighbors noticed thousands of dollars in cash went missing from their home on several occasions.

Court documents state the couple then set a trap with security cameras and planted cash as bait. The cameras showed a woman wearing a very large men’s suit, a beanie hat and a fake mustache.

Authorities say the victims recognized the woman as their neighbor, to whom they had given a key to their house.

Police say they later found the disguise in the woman’s home. The woman’s name wasn’t reported.
