TYLER - A stun gun, a knife, nunchukas and a fake mustache are just a few of the items police say the found on 51-year-old Maricela Aguilera Rodriguez when they arrested her Thursday morning.
Authorities say they received a call from a home-owner claiming a man had broken into their home.
The victim said she and her three children, were then bound and duct-taped.
Once Rodriguez began searching the home, the victims ran to a neighbors house before calling the police.
Once police arrived they corned the robber and found that Rodriguez was actually a woman who had disguised herself as a man.
Police say through their investigation, Rogriguez was previously deported to Mexico in 2008 by immigration and customs enforcement.
She is charged with intent to commit a felony.
