George was charged Sept. 20 with burglary of a building, three counts of theft of a firearm, felony bail jumping and four counts of fraudulent use of a credit card, all as a repeat offender.

George, 33, told police she had planned the burglary for three weeks with her accomplices after she told them about a “sugar daddy” she had been seeing, according to the complaint. While the victim was out of town, they went to the home and took a 12-gauge shotgun, two pistols, a thermal imaging scope, a wallet and two watches, as well as some clothes and boots.
