An Ohio woman is claiming that boredom and a lapse in judgment drove her to steal 28 packages from neighbors’ homes in a bizarre two-day crime spree.
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.

In the wake of her conviction, Bergman said that she had it all when she committed these felonies, and in an interview with NBC 5 noted: ‘I’m looking back, and I’m like, “What was I thinking?” At this time, my head wasn’t in the right place. I wasn’t thinking, and I made the wrong decision.Bergman also made sure to point out that she lives in a $475,000 house, a claim that is no longer entirely accurate as she and her husband separated after she was arrested in November for sleeping with another man and stealing his credit card information.
The two also purchased the house for $450,000 last year per property records.
Bergman has also been convicted of grand larceny in the past, is due in court for at least one more case in a neighboring county and has been arrested across three states in the past decade under four different surnames for shoplifting, larceny and theft.

MELISSA’S APOLOGY

‘To everyone in mason, and all those affected. I am terribly sorry for my misconduct and the theft of packages that happened in July of last year. Though, I was not on drugs, I was admitted the the psych ward before the stealing began for trying to commit suicide. I given multiple medications but in no way am I saying this is the cause to why I did what I did.To be honest, I dont know why I did this terrible thing. I wasn’t needing the items or needing money. I feel and felt terrible afterwards and seeing the post a month after the incident, with my photo and what I did, made me feel like the worst person in the world and again I wanted out of this life. I not only made you all scared, but I lost your trust. I hurt your families and those are things I can never make better. I was incredibly hurt by what I did and wanted to go to each person individually to apologize. But I was told that I could not. I hope one day I can be forgiven for my past mistakes and completely understand the hatred and hurt in everyone’s heart. I was selfish and only cared about myself. Over this past year I have changed to be a better person all around. I am extremely sorry for all the hurt, anger, and fear I have caused in everyone. If anyone wants me to apologize in person I would be more than happy to do so. I am not a terrible person, though I did do a terrible thing, something I wish every day I could go back and make that decision not to do it… I am so so so sorry everyone.

Melissa claims to have served in Afghanistan. It has been confirmed that she was at Fort Bragg for a number of years. During her time there she was arrested on at least seven different occasions, and even spent time in prison after a 2010 arrest in Virginia.
She went by Melissa Abeyta at that time, and was stopped by store workers when she tried to leave with a bag of stolen goods from the Short Pump Town Center in Henrico.
Bergman managed to make it outside the store, and when the loss prevention officer caught up with her she sprayed Mace in their face per court records.
She eventually agreed to enter a guilty plea to grand larceny which vacated the unlawful release of gas change and got her three years in prison.
She was released after just two days.
Bergman was also arrested in North Carolina just before that when she was allegedly caught stealing at a JC Penney, but was never convicted of a crime.
In total, Bergman was arrested at lest five times in North Carolina under three different surnames.
