MIDLAND - A real estate agent and her sister got locked up in Midland over the weekend after they were caught taking prescription drugs from several homes.
Melanie Zellner and Melissa Williams are both facing burglary charges.
Last week, authorities learned that they would go to homes on the market and steal hydrocodone pills.
They would then replace the pills with Excedrin.
No clients were present when Zellner and Williams went to the houses.
After video surveillance confirmed the findings, authorities stopped the pair.
That's when they found the stolen pills, along with Excedrin and a list of homes for sale.
Williams and Zellner confessed to the crime saying they had been stealing hydrocodone from the houses for the past two months.
