Police say a Dekalb County woman tries to rob a gas station convenience store while intoxicated.
But it's not just the alleged thievery that's unusual.
"It's been weird. It's been a big ordeal," said gas station clerk Tiffany Hale.
Over the fourth of July holiday weekend, Hale says she noticed one customer in particular acting unusual.
"She kind of looked kinda drunk, kind of intoxicated, kind of stumbling a little bit," said Hale.
That customer police say is 54-year-old Christine Saunders. Hale says Saunders tried taking a number of things including chocolate honey buns, cans of soup and cookies. But she says she wasn't prepared to see what was outside the store's window.
"I didn't know what it was. So it was funny seeing it just tied up there," said Saunders.
It was a horse. When police got there, they also found three cans of beer tied onto the saddle horn.
"She had a big huge stuff in her back, in her front and everything. It's just she couldn't hardly walk with the stuff in her pockets. I just thought, how is she going to get on the horse with that stuff," said Hale.
The news is shocking residents around town.
"I just can't believe it on a horse. You know in a car you might believe it. But on a horse? That's just unbelievable," said resident Perry Champion.
Police say the horse was brought back to it's original owner, who told police he didn't want to press any charges.
Hale says she was told it was allegedly taken out of a man's front yard just right down the street. We tried going to his house to get his side of the story but he had a "no trespassing" sign on his property.
