HASTINGS, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) A 43-year-old Hastings woman is under arrest following a home break-in on Saturday.
Hastings Police received a call of an unknown woman inside a house in the 700 block of South Church Street, but the woman was gone by the time police arrived.
A relative of the homeowner told police that when she returned to the house, she noticed a bag filled with items and a pair of gloves sitting on a chair.
She then informed police that she heard footsteps in the house and began to search the house, before finding a woman hiding in an upstairs closet.
