TYNDALL - A woman was arrested for taking prescription drugs from three homes in Bon Homme County.

Michelle Gibson, 42, of Tyndall, was arrested by Tyndall police on Oct. 31 after Gibson allegedly confessed to taking hydrocodone from two Bon Homme County houses and Tylenol with codeine from another.

According to court documents, Gibson said she has been in six houses but only stole from three.

When initially questioned by police, Gibson allegedly said she wanted to talk because "she needed help."

Gibson was charged with second-degree burglary, a class 3 felony punishable upon conviction by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine; and obtaining a controlled substance by theft, a class 4 felony punishable upon conviction by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine.
