Ohio woman breaks into home, washes dishes and leaves

An Ohio woman broke into a home on Monday and somehow managed to perform a good deed before she left, according to the Vinton County Sheriff's Office.  

Cheyenne Ewing allegedly entered the residence through a back door around 9 a.m. and made herself at home. She sat on the couch and pet the family dog before she got up to do the dishes, Sheriff Shawn Justice said. After she was done cleaning them, she reportedly left the house.

The victim who called to report the burglary said he or she did not know Ewing, who was described as behaving strangely.

Authorities found Ewing later after receiving a call about a person who matched the woman's description. Ewing was purportedly knocking on several doors in the neighborhood at the time. 

Police said Ewing appeared to be under the influence of drugs when they apprehended her. She initially gave them a fake name and said she had been up for two days straight. 

Ewing was taken to the South Eastern Ohio Regional Jail on a burglary charge. Her bond hearing was held on Tuesday.
