Ex-con Robbed Five-Year-Old in Athens, Georgia

Authorities say Serena Michelle Kirk, 42, stole the gold
necklace from the girl's neck Friday at an apartment complex after
she ran into a breezeway to escape dogs roaming the area.

Athens-Clarke County Police Sgt. Christopher Nichols says that
Kirk pretended to protect the girl while quietly unhooking the
necklace.

Kirk is being charged with robbery, theft by deception and
third-degree child cruelty.

State prison records show that Kirk has served three stints in
Georgia prisons, including a 1991 conviction on kidnapping and
robbery charges.
