Burglar in bathroom turns out to be Roomba

WASHINGTON CO., OR (CNN Newsource) – Oregon police responding to a “burglary in progress” call ended up catching the culprit — a Roomba vacuum trapped in a woman’s bathroom.

It all started when a woman in Washington County called 911 and reported that a stranger was in her bathroom.

She said the person had locked the door. 

She also told the operator she could see shadows moving under the door.

Deputies soon surrounded the home and used a loudspeaker to make commands.

They finally went in with their guns drawn.

The deputy who wrote the report said, after they breached the bathroom door, that they found the Roomba and a thoroughly vacuumed floor.
