Soccer Moms In Court

Two former soccer moms, accused of burglary, went back to court Tuesday morning.

Teresa Manley and Melissa Collis are both charged with three counts of burglary after police say they hit three homes in the Squires Oaks Area of Lexington.

Teresa Manley, out of jail on bond, was the first to approach the bench during a pre-trial hearing. She and Melissa Collis, who is behind bars, both continued their cases until November 20th.

Police say Collis was out of jail on bond when she committed these crimes; they say she had recently been charged with theft by unlawful taking.

Police say the women knew each other and their victims through their children's soccer team. Police say, thanks to soccer schedules, the two women knew when their victims would be away from their homes.

Investigators say Collins would break in and steal from homes while Manley worked as a look-out.

Police say the two took stolen items to pawn shops, and that is how they were caught.

Neither lawyer wanted to comment on the case after Tuesday's hearing.
