Officers draw on a Roomba

Local News

Oregon police responding to a “burglary in progress” call ended up catching the culprit, but it came as a shock.

Officers say it turned out to be a Roomba vacuum trapped in a woman’s bathroom! And it was  caught on an officer’s body-cam.

It all started when a woman called 9-1-1 to report a stranger was in her bathroom. She said the person had locked the door and also told the operator she could see shadows moving under the door.

Deputies soon surrounded the home, used a loudspeaker to make commands, and brought in a K-9.

They finally went in with their guns drawn.

The deputy who wrote the report said after they breached the bathroom door… They found the Roomba and a thoroughly vacuumed floor.
