Police find burglar under kitchen sink

An Augusta woman was charged with burglary after police found her hiding under the kitchen sink in the victim’s home Friday.

Olanda Attaway, 21, of Brown Street, was charged with felony burglary in the first degree, according to Richmond County jail records.

The victim, Porsha Thomas, 26, of the 1200 block of Holden Drive, told deputies she called 911 when she heard her back window break. Thomas was in the house with her three small children.

When deputies arrived, they found the stove overturned and Attaway under the kitchen sink. Police later determined that Attaway entered the house by standing on a chair and climbing through the broken window, according to an incident report.
