FYFFE, AL (WAFF) -

A drunk woman stole items from a store after she rode there on a stolen horse, according to authorities.

According to the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office, 45-year-old Christine Saunders, of Fyffe, was intoxicated when deputies and officers with the Fyffe Police Department arrived at the store in Hammonds Crossroads.

According to Sheriff Jimmy Harris, Saunders had a horse tied up outside of the store that she was believed to be riding. Officers recovered three cans of Keystone Light in a Walmart bag that was tied to the saddle horn.

The horse was returned to the owner who did not want to press charges.

The sheriff's office is working with the store owner on other charges.

Saunders was arrested and charged with public intoxication and illegal possession of a prohibited beverage. She was booked into the DeKalb County Detention Center.
