Ohio woman breaks into stranger's home, washes dishes, pets family dog and leaves
A woman was arrested after she broke into a home in Hamden, Ohio, earlier this week on Monday. On breaking and entering she sat on a couch in the home and began to pet the family dog, according to the sheriff's officials. She now faces burglary charges.
The Vinton County Sheriff's Officer said the incident occurred at 9 a.m. on Monday as a resident told the officials that a woman broke into her house and began behaving in a bizarre manner. The resident of the house said the woman entered through the back door, sat down on the couch and began to pet the family dog. She then washed the dishes and left the house, according to reports.
The resident of the house told the deputies she did not know the woman and she was never invited into their home. As the deputies were speaking with the victim of the incident, sheriff officials received a call that a woman with the same description of the burglar had been spotted knocking on doors in the area of Omar Street Hamden, KTLA5 reported.
Sheriff's officials said the suspect was later located by a deputy. She was identified as Cheyenne Ewing, and gave a false name to the deputies. Officials also added that the woman appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. She reportedly told the officers she had been awake for two days.
The woman was promptly arrested on suspicion of burglary and charged. Ewing, following her arrest, was taken to the South Eastern Ohio Regional Jail. According to jail records, the suspect is being held on a $10,000 bond.
