An Alabama woman was arrested for riding a horse—which, for the record, she stole—to rob a store over the weekend. 

According to, 45-year-old Fyffe, Ala. resident Christine Saunders took the horse, then traveled to a nearby store where DeKalb County deputies say she stole merchandise from the store. She was found with the stolen goods in her possession, and the horse was discovered tied up outside of the store with a bag carrying three cans of beer tied to its saddle. 

Though the horse owners elected not to press charges, Saunders was charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage. Additional charges will likely follow.
