Woman questioned after several car break-ins in Cambria

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office say they have as a suspect as it investigates a series of car break-ins that were reported Thursday.
 
The reported events took place on Shunpike, Plank, Budd and Vandusen roads overnight.
 
At 12:51 a.m., deputies responded to 4235 Plank Road for a report of a suspicious woman entering vehicles in the area. The caller said an unknown woman, driving a dark colored four-door sedan, stopped in front a home and then shut the engine off. The woman had a flashlight and entered a Ford Explorer and then entered the passenger side of a Jeep Wrangler. The female was inside each vehicle for about two minutes.
 
The woman crossed the roadway and walked up the driveway of a neighbor's residence. The witness yelled at the woman to stop but the she went back to her vehicle and left on Plank Road. While conducting interviews, a woman matching the description was discovered inside of a vehicle located at Vandusen Road.
 
Patrol observed a dome light on the vehicle on and observed the suspect in the driver's seat with the driver's-side door ajar. The suspect, who did not own the car, stated she was looking for jumper cables but then allegedly admitted to taking change from the car. The homeowner confirmed that loose change was missing from both of her vehicles. The suspect was told that she will be contacted by NCSO in the near future.
 
On Shunpike Road, a victim reported two iPods valued at $500 and a Sears $100 gift card were stolen. On Budde Road, $67 was taken from a wallet and another $10 in change was taken from the console.
