>Woman, 20, is charged in Brant home burglary

A 20-year-old Brant woman was arrested over the weekend by Erie County sheriff's deputies who followed footprints from a residence where $200 in silver coins and several CDs had been stolen.

Deputies Scott Joslyn and Joel Schenfield said the home on Brant-Farnham Road had been entered by breaking the front window Saturday night. Footprints leading to another house led to the arrest of Teresa J. Kobel of Southwestern Boulevard, they said.

She was charged with second-degree burglary and criminal mischief.
