Woman Finds Own Stuff At Neighbor's Yard Sale

You never know what you might find when visiting a yard sale, but you probably wouldn't expect to find your own stuff at your neighbor's house.

That's what happened to one Maryland woman. She says she was burglarized and later saw her missing things sitting at her neighbor's yard sale.

Police arrested David Perticone and charged him with burglary and theft. He says he thought the house had been abandoned.

"I thought they were going to foreclose and I thought it was going to go to the dump or whatever," said David Perticone. "You know, it was going to go to waste. So, I'm thinking, I wasn't thinking right, but I'm thinking, 'I'm going to get these things before they go to the trash heap."

Police say about $25,000 worth of stuff was stolen, including an Oriental rug, a fur coat and furniture. The woman's items have been returned to her.
