Sarah Palin's sister-in-law arrested for burglary

Posted: 11:16 AM ET

via Alaska Daily News

Todd Palin's half-sister was arrested Thursday after police say she broke into a Wasilla home to steal money for the second time this week but ended up getting caught by the armed homeowner. The woman's 4-year-old daughter was nearby, police said.

Todd Palin is Gov. Sarah Palin's husband. He referred questions to a spokeswoman for the governor, who said the family would have no comment.

Police arrested 35-year-old Diana Palin at a house on West Mill Site Circle near Wasilla's Multi-Use Sports Complex.

Homeowner Theodore Turcott told police an unfamiliar gray 1993 Toyota Camry pulled into his driveway Thursday morning, according to a affidavit filed Friday at the Palmer courthouse. Turcott told police he'd been burglarized twice recently: Someone stole $2,200 on March 26, leaving $400 behind, and after another apparent break-in Tuesday, all but $9 was gone.

So, Turcott told police, when he didn't recognize the woman getting out of the Camry, he grabbed a gun and hid in the bathroom to see what would happen, said Wasilla police Deputy Chief Greg Wood.

Is the prosecution arm so messed up in Alaska, because of the Stevens debacle, that the Palins' 1/2 million dollar house will never be investigated?
In TP's own words, "Some contractor buddies helped us build it."
[same contractors who were building the new Sportsplex down the road???] sheesh

This should come to no surprise about any one connected to Palin. This is who the RNC wants to attempt to run in 2012? More corruption in Politics, that is all we need.

I just the Palins dont just "pal" around with criminals that endanger children, but they are related to them as well.

Should have read 'I guess..."

When will the Palin horse-and-pony show finally leave town and leave us all alone? Palin and her extended circle need to pull themselves out of the gutter. This latest nonsense with Levi Johnston is Palin's come-up-ence for bringing him into the spotlight for her own gain. Palin in 2012? . . .give us a break!
