Melissa Bergman, 30, drove around the town of Mason with her two young children in the car, and strolled right up to the targeted homes last July.
She was eventually caught when an officer recognized her car and pulled her over in a traffic stop, at which point she confessed to the crime states an incident report.
The mother-of-two entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity during her trial, but was still found guilty on 12 counts of theft last month, landing her in prison for 30 days and on probation for the next three years.
