The Florence Police Department arrested a woman it says was found going through vehicles that did not belong to her.

Dianna Alexander, 41, of Florence was arrested Monday morning after officers responded to a burglary in progress call at Simpsons Wrecker on Rickwood Road, said Sgt. Gregory Cobb, department spokesperson. Workers there had detained Alexander, Cobb said.

Cobb said Alexander, who did not have a vehicle stored at the lot, entered three vehicles looking for items. She showed officers a bag with items inside it.

She was charged with breaking and entering into a vehicle, criminal trespassing, possession of burglary tools, and theft of property.

She was taken to the Lauderdale County Detention Center and bond was set at $10,500.
