Burglar takes money from Walbridge woman

An elderly woman awoke Tuesday to find a burglar in her home in Walbridge, police said.

Marian Hansen, 89, of 205 Park Lane, woke up about midnight and saw the man, who threatened to burn down her house if she didn't tell him where she kept her money, police Chief Lance Martin said.

She gave the suspect $200. He then grabbed her ATM card and demanded the PIN number. When she told him she didn't know it, he fled, the chief said.
