Woman arrested for breaking into stranger's home, petting their dog and cleaning the dishes
The FBI reports that the average burglary victim is left $2,251 out of pocket, with 75% of these crimes taking place in homes.
One woman, however, has recently been arrested for breaking an entry only to pet a stranger's dog and clean their dishes. Thirty-one-year-old Cheyenne Ewing then left the residence without stealing anything, Vinton County Sheriff's Office in Ohio reports.
This man was so engrossed by his smartphone that he didn't notice an armed robbery taking place:
The police revealed that the suspect was seen by a witness entering the property through the backdoor on Monday evening at 9 am. Once inside, she then began to pet the family dog before doing the washing up.
"The victim stated that they did not know the female and the female was not invited into the residence," Sheriff Shawn Justice wrote on Facebook.
"The victim also stated that the female was acting very strange."
The suspect was seen by other witnesses trying to gain entry to other properties in the area prior to the incident taking place.
When Ewing was questioned by authorities, she gave them a fake name and appeared to be under the influence of narcotics, the Evening Express reports.
"Ewing also advised that she had been up for two days," the sheriff added.
She has now been charged with burglary.
