A 52-year-old woman caught a burglar in her Wichita home on Thursday eating cookie dough that he took from her freezer.

The Wichita Eagle reports that the woman was awakened from her sleep after hearing a lot of commotion in her home. She left her bedroom around 3:30 AM Thursday morning in order to see what was causing all of the commotion. The report states that is when the woman saw a stranger in her home, eating cookie dough that he had taken from the refrigerator freezer in her kitchen. Local police were called to the scene of the incident, located in South Wichita, and confronted the intruder directly.

Lieutenant James Espinoza, the official spokesman for the Wichita Police, explained exactly what the suspected burglar told the police in regards to why he was inside of the woman’s house.

“The suspect told police he believed it to be his aunt’s house and he was hungry… so he went to the freezer.”

Lt. Espinoza also confirmed that the 28-year-old man entered the home located near Lincoln and Waco through the back door, which was left unlocked.

The 52-year-old woman that lives inside of the home was not injured by the burglar.

The New York Daily News reports that the intruder was arrested on the suspicion of aggravated burglary.
