Bah Humbug:  Social Media helps Nab the Wife of a Florida Police Officer who was Caught on Surveillance Video Stealing Packages containing Christmas Gifts from the Porch of another Police Officer’s Family Meet 42 year… Scroll down to read more!

Meet 42 year old Dana Hager of Lakeland, Florida.  That’s her mug shot below…

Dana is married to Haines City Police Sergeant Kevin Hager and after she was caught on surveillance brazenly strolling up to the front door of another police officer’s house and taking two (2) large brown USPS packages which contained presents for that family’s toddler, she was arrested.

Video footage shows Dana approach, take the packages, then calmly walk back to her car (which was parked across the street), load the boxes and then drive away.

Dana was charged with burglary of an occupied dwelling, petty theft and… wait for it… violation of probation.  (Yes, you read that right…)  Apparently Dana had previously been placed on probation earlier this year after being found guilty of shoplifting from Kohl’s department store.

So how did she get caught this time?  Dana was caught after the homeowner, who is also a cop’s wife, reportedly noticed a “shadow” walk past the window outside of her home.  Completely terrified, the woman, who had been in the house with her toddler, reportedly “ran to her bedroom with her child and looked at her video surveillance system”.  The video showed a woman walk up to the porch, swipe the packages and bolt with them.  The victim did not recognize the thief so she called the cops and also posted the security footage to social media.  Friends and neighbors were soon able to identify Dana, including a colleague who worked with the Dana and who said that she had recognized her co-worker’s tattoo.  Finally, another witness came forward to say that she had seen Dana outside the victim’s home that night.  Add it all up and what you have is both probable cause and a burglary FAIL!

Because of her probation violation, but also likely due to both the brazen nature of her crime and the victim’s status (stealing Christmas presents from a law enforcement family), Dana is being held at the Polk County Jail without bond.  Dana’s husband has not made public comment but, per Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has gone on record saying:  “The fact that Hager took the packages off of a neighbor’s front porch is shocking.  The fact that she is the wife of a law enforcement officer is even more shocking…  You know I wanted to say, ‘What are you doing girl?’  Here’s a law enforcement officer’s wife that’s going to the next street over and stealing off of the porch of another law enforcement officer’s wife.  Huh?  You kidding me?”

Memo to Dana Hager:  I don’t know why but I am gonna go out on a limb and say that you have had a meltdown of sorts.  Maybe it’s menopause.  Maybe it’s a mid-life crisis.  Maybe it is a cry for help.  Maybe it is indicia of an unhappy marriage,  Maybe it is your warped way of punishing your husband.  Maybe you are mentally ill.  Maybe you are just a sociopath.  Whatever the reason it is clear that you will need a skilled and experienced criminal defense lawyer who can not only identify these possibilities but successfully spin them, with proper expert assistance, to your benefit.  But, even with the best lawyer and the best experts, you have to be with the program.  Thus, I urge you to GET HELP!
