Sacramento, U.S. – Jennifer Burgess had just gotten out of the shower when police picked her up. Unfortunately, it wasn’t her shower.
Randy Kizer, a Sacramento homeowner, had no clue how the 24-year-old Burgess got into his house or why she was wearing his son’s robe
Burgess even answered Kizer’s door with her hair wet and tried to explain that she thought the house was abandoned.
“She goes, ‘Can I go change?’” Kizer recalls, “And I go, ‘Yeah, you can.’”
He stayed outside, lest she had company, he said.
Kizer then asked Burgess if she was homeless and she said she was.
He also asked her if she had been at the house before, but she denied that.
However, Kizer is skeptical since Burgess seemed to move about the home like she’d been there before, he told the station.
“One of the dogs was laying on the floor here and this is the dog that jumps on everyone,” he said. “The dogs weren’t at all alarmed by her presence.”
Deputies arrived on the scene to arrest Burgess. They said she had not only planned to walk away with every spare key in the house, but she had also stolen $46 in cash that had been in his childrens’ piggy banks.
Burgess was arrested on suspicion of felony burglary and was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail. She is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
