A woman was arrested on suspicion of burglarizing a Madera home Thursday, the Madera County Sheriff's Office said.

The witnesses said two men took off in a gray GMC truck, leaving Galindo behind with a car that turned out to be stolen, police said.

Deputies said that at least $5,000 worth of property was taken from the home.

Galindo was booked into the Madera County Department of Corrections on suspicion of burglary, receiving known stolen property and possession of a controlled substance.
