Why House Sitter Called 911 on a Roomba

Why House Sitter Called 911 on a Roomba”

Authorities responding to a potential burglar at a woman's home in OR quickly found themselves confronting a suspect with a surprisingly clean record. They made their way to the bathroom but there was no intruder, just a Roomba moving around.

So with guns drawn, deputies opened the door, ready to pounce.

In a Facebook post on Tuesday, staff at the Washington County Sheriff's Office revealed the woman called 911 to report a stranger was in her bathroom with the door locked and that she could see shadows under the door.

"As we entered the home we could hear rustling in the bathroom". They call in a K9 to help. They breached the bathroom door and found... a Roomba vacuum cleaner and a thoroughly vacuumed floor.

"In 13 years, this is my first Roomba burglar", Sgt. Danny DiPietro, a Washington County Sheriff's Office spokesman, told OregonLive.

- Police in OR responded to a call from a woman who thought someone had broken into her house and was in her bathroom.

Sheriff deputies surrounded the house within seven minutes. They were house-sitting for their nephew and had stepped out to walk the dog, according to DiPietro. "We don't know if they're armed or if they're going to attack us".
