Ohio Woman Broke Into Home, Pet The Family Dog, Washed Dishes & Left, Cops Say
Police say Cheyenne Ewing appeared “under the influence of narcotics.”
HAMDEN, OH — Police say a woman broke into a family’s home on Monday, petted their dog for a while, washed some dishes in the kitchen sink, and then left.
Even though she didn’t steal anything, cops arrested Cheyenne Ewing and charged her with burglary. Officers also reported that Ewing initially gave them a fake name and appeared to be “under the influence of narcotics.”
The homeowner reportedly told police that no one there knew Ewing or invited her in, and that it appeared she snuck inside through a back door. A nearby neighbor said that Ewing had been knocking on doors along the street prior to the alleged break-in and was acting “very strange.”
Kevin Jordan, who lives next door to the home at which the alleged invasion occurred, told a reporter that he’s known Ewing for years, and added, “She didn't get mad or anything when they cuffed her up. I think that might have been the best thing to happen to her…. At least she’s a friendly burglar, you know?”
Deputies took Ewing to Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail. She’s due in court next Tuesday. A family member of Ewing's has reportedly expressed hope that this incident will lead Ewing to rehab for the help they think she needs.
