On Tuesday, police in Oregon responded to a 911 call from a woman who believed a burglar was trapped inside the bathroom inside her home.
On the phone, the reporting party said they could “see shadows under the bathroom door.”
On Facebook, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office said that by 1:49 p.m. on Tuesday they began to deploy to the home. The group of deputies arrived by 1:55, with a canine for support. Deputies reported that they could hear “noise coming from the bathroom.”
After being in the house for ten minutes, the situation had not changed. The suspect was unresponsive when spoken to. Police felt they had to take action.
“With guns drawn, deputies open the door to encounter the suspect… An automated robot vacuum,” the Facebook post said.
Yes, like a Roomba. A classic mix-up, really!
The space was determined to be safe and burglar-free.
“We breached the bathroom door and encountered a very thorough vacuuming job being done by a Roomba Robotic Vacuum cleaner,” Washington County Sheriff’s Deputy Rodgers said.
It seems that the only thing stolen was dust off the bathroom floor.
