OBERNBURG, Germany, Oct. 24 (UPI) -- Police say a woman who stole thousands of dollars worth of jewelry from a shop in Obernburg, Germany, erred big time -- she left her name and address behind.

The 38-year-old woman allegedly grabbed a tray filled with about 10,000 euros ($13,900) worth of gold and silver jewelry and watches from a glass case Thursday, The Local reported.

Police had little trouble tracking her down. They said she had given her name and address to the store clerk shortly before the theft when she asked to have a bracelet cleaned.

She was arrested, eventually confessed and the stolen jewelry was recovered, The Local said.
