Robot Burglary

The Washington County Sheriff's Office in Oregon posted body cam footage of the Beaverton Police responding to a burglary call. Two men were housesitting, and when they came back from walking the dog, they heard noises in the bathroom, but the door was locked.
Just seven minutes later, law enforcement surrounded the callers' house. They waited outside the bathroom with a trained K-9 and heard banging from inside the room. Police told the Washington Post that the suspect might have forced a window open as a last ditch effort to escape.
Officers brought a dog in to take down the intruder, which turned out to be a diligent Roomba banging against the shower. The house sitters did not know the home had a programmable Roomba. A good laugh was had by all.
