A woman caught on camera breaking into a home through a doggy door is facing charges more than a year later. 

Video shows Christina Nelms crawl into a home in the Foothills back in March 2018. She rummaged through items on a table, grabbed a backpack and took off. 

Police were able to track her down through an iPhone she stole, but she had not been officially charged with residential burglary and larceny until now because detectives were waiting on fingerprints found at the home to match Nelm’s fingerprints. 

They confirmed the match earlier this month, and now a warrant has been issued for her arrest.
