SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police say a Salt Lake City woman wore a fake mustache to disguise herself as a man while stealing from her neighbors.

Salt Lake City police say the 31-year-old was charged with two counts of burglary and one count of theft Thursday.

The Salt Lake Tribune (http://bit.ly/wQ0s0u ) reports the woman's neighbors noticed thousands of dollars in cash went missing from their home on several occasions.

Court documents state the couple then set a trap with security cameras and planted cash as bait. The cameras showed a woman wearing a very large men's suit, a beanie hat and a fake mustache.

Authorities say the victims recognized the woman as their neighbor, to whom they had given a key to their house.

Police say they later found the disguise in the woman's home. The woman's name wasn't reported.
