Woman calls 911 about burglar in bathroom; deputies find trapped Roomba

Multiple deputies responded, even calling in a canine officer for assistance.

They reported hearing noise coming from the bathroom but go no response from the suspected burglar when they called out.

The woman called 911 on Tuesday to report that someone was in her bathroom with the door locked and that she could see shadows moving under the door.

"As we entered the home we could hear "rustling" in the bathroom", a deputy with the Washington County Sheriff's Office said, according to the Facebook post.

Lyft investors bail as Uber IPO prospect casts a looming shadow
Uber could finally start going public on Thursday-and the company hopes to achieve one of the biggest tech IPOs in history. In a regulatory filing , Uber said it will list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "UBER".


Police later learned that the men who phoned the police had become alarmed after going on a walk and returned to noises in the bathroom. But after shouted commands, breaching the door with guns drawn, things were significantly less serious than were believed. With guns drawn, deputies opened the door to find the suspect was an automated robot vacuum. Take the case of a "burglary in progress" call in Oregon.

"As we entered the home we could hear "rustling" in the bathroom". Instead they were met by a Roomba, a robotic vacuum cleaner, that appeared to be trapped inside. They didn't know this vacuum was going to kick on and go and do this.

It looks like this crook... got off clean.
