A North Carolina mother recorded herself as she broke into multiple homes with two children — and posted the videos on YouTube, according to authorities.
Ashley Ball, 22, would enter the buildings illegally with two girls, aged 13 and 2, according to Fox 8. It is believed the younger girl is Ball's daughter and that the two children might be sisters.
"My first reaction was how brazen could this be? You're televising yourself on YouTube video committing a criminal act," Randolph County Sheriff Rober Graves told Fox 8. "The second thing that was disturbing to us was that she had children there with her while she was doing this. One was a toddler and didn't have anything on but a diaper outside."
Fox 8 obtained startling video of Ball breaking into a home with the kids by her side.

Ball can be heard telling the teen to climb through a window and then helps the 2-year-old child into the building. "I wish there weren't neighbors right here, the window is open," Ball is heard saying, according to Fox 8. "We’re gonna go in, I’m just watching for cars — watching for neighbors."
Later, Ball realizes the power is on in the home: "Maybe they're fixing it up," she says, according to the station. "I’ll just be like, I’m sorry, I thought it was abandoned!"
Her 2-year-old child has been placed in the custody of the county. Ball was charged with misdemeanor breaking and entering and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, but could face other charges, according to Fox 8.
