Alleged Burglar Entered Ohio Home, Pet Dog and Washed Dishes: Police

A burglary suspect in Ohio is accused of entering a stranger’s home, petting their dog and then doing dishes in the home before leaving, according to police.

The Vinton County Sheriff’s office said it received a call from a homeowner in the Hamden area saying that a woman entered their home through a back door, sat down on their couch and began petting their family dog. The woman then washed the dishes and left the residence, police said.

“The victim stated that they did not know the female and the female was not invited into the residence,” the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post. “The victim also stated that the female was acting very strange.”

While they were talking to the homeowner, officers received a report of a woman matching the description of the burglar knocking on doors in the area.

Cheyenne Ewing was arrested at the scene and ultimately charged with burglary, according to the sheriff’s office. She allegedly gave a deputy a false name and said she had been up for two days. Police said she “appeared to be under the influence of narcotics.”

She appeared in bond court Tuesday where a judge set her bond at $10,000. She was next expected to appear in court Thursday.
