Charges have been filed against the woman accused of stealing 165 plants and lawn ornaments from area homes.

The St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office says Britney Shatzer was charged with two counts of theft.

Police say she was arrested in connection to a string of home burglaries in South Bend and Mishawaka. Police say she took plants and decorations right off front porches.

After conducting a search warrant, police say they found 165 of those plants and decorations in her possession.

Police say anyone who believes their items were stolen can file a police report.

They can then call the records division to re-claim their items.
