Testimonies of two psychologists failed to convince a judge of Ohio, that a woman was insane when she swiped packages from 12 veranda’s in the suburb of Cincinnati, prosecutors said.

Instead, Melissa Bergman, 30, Mason, Ohio, was found guilty on Wednesday to 12 felony theft, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported.

According to the prosecutor, surveillance cameras caught Bergman drive by Deerfield Township, the collection of packages off of porches. Later, Bergman was found to have taken packages from homes in Warren and Butler county, the newspaper reported.

Bergman’s mental state “does not prevent them know of the illegality of her act,” the court ruled, according to the paper.

Last November, Bergman was arrested and charged with theft of identity, reportedly after the payment of purchases with stolen credit cards, WLWT-TV reported.
