FAIRVIEW, N.C. (AP) -- Authorities in Buncombe County say have accused a woman of breaking into a fire station and stealing a pair of boots belonging to one of the chiefs.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reports the Buncombe County Sheriff's Office said 54-year-old Linda Marie Hall of Gerton is charged with felony breaking and entering and felony larceny after breaking and entering.

Fairview Volunteer Fire Department Chief Scott Jones said surveillance footage showed Hall walking in through an open bay door after a fire truck went out on a call on Jan. 13 and walking out with the boots.

Hall is jailed in lieu of a $22,000 secured bond and was scheduled to appear in court on Thursday. It's not known if she has an attorney.
