Authorities in Ohio say a woman broke into a house in Vinton County on Monday morning and performed some odd jobs around the house before going on her way.

According to the New York Post, Cheyenne Ewing was arrested on suspicion of entering the residence in Hamden at about 9 a.m. and making herself at home.

She was believed to be on drugs at the time, police reported.

In a statement regarding the incident, the Vinton County Sheriff’s Office alleged that Ewing first found a seat on the couch. From there, she got busy by petting the dog and cleaning dirty dishes in the kitchen.

A resident reported the intruder to local authorities, indicating the family did not know her and said she “was acting very strange” after coming in uninvited.

Though she left the scene, authorities responded to the location a short time later and reported finding the woman in the same neighborhood approaching houses and knocking on their doors.

Upon taking her into custody, officers reported that she attempted to provide them with a false identity. As they questioned her, Ewing reportedly told police that she had not had any sleep for a couple of days.

She was booked into the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail on Monday with a court appearance scheduled for the following day. She is expected to face a criminal charge of burglary.
