CONYERS, Ga. (WXIA) - This is an incredible story that sounds like something from Dickens' "Oliver Twist."

A Rockdale County mother is accused of using her own 5-year-old son to help burglarize her next door neighbor's home.

"I just couldn't believe it; I mean, it was unreal; I was so shocked," the burglary victim told 11Alive News on Friday.

The woman, who doesn't want to be publicly identified, said she installed a small computer surveillance camera around Thanksgiving after noticing things missing from her home a few weeks ago.

"I would come home in the evenings and things would not be where they were," the victim said.

Then last Sunday she noticed the camera and some other items were missing.

But her computer still contained several photos that shocked her.

It showed a child, wearing footie pajamas, crawling through a small doggie door in the back of her home, then unlocking a back door next to it and letting an adult woman in.
