GREAT FALLS — Authorities say a Great Falls woman stole a front-end loader and drove it into the apartment building where she lived.

Prosecutors charged 34-year-old Heather Houston with felony theft, criminal mischief and criminal endangerment, along with misdemeanor criminal mischief and criminal trespass to property.

Houston's neighbor told police that she crashed the loader into his window Sunday morning and then used it to climb into her own apartment.

Police told the Great Falls Tribune that Houston was topless, though the police statement filed in court made no mention of her clothing.

Authorities estimated $1,600 in damage to the apartment building, $1,000 in damage to the front-end loader, plus damage to a lawn, a gate, a fence and a pickup truck.

There is no phone listing for Houston and it's not clear whether she has hired an attorney.
