(Scroll down for video) A mother woke-up in the morning to find a stranger snuggled up on her couch and food scattered all over her kitchen.
Kristin Paragios of Beverly, Massachusetts, was surprised when she found a teenage girl sleeping on her couch.
“I thought my daughter came home and that it was one of her friends on my couch,” Paragios said. “I called my daughter and I asked her, but my daughter was like, I do not know her,” she said.
Paragios called police, who arrested the 19-year-old of Danvers, for trespassing. Police said that the 19-year-old entered the home through a window.
Once inside, the intruder made herself at home. She used the kitchen to cook food for herself. She mistakenly left the oven working all night and she left food strewn all over the kitchen.
The fact that the gas oven where Paragios stores pots and pans was on all night is the most alarming of all. “My house could have burned down and she was only charged with trespassing,” Paragios said.
Beverly Police said that the 19-year-old appeared intoxicated and confused. She told the officers that she was not sure how she got into the house. She also told officers that she thought it was her friend’s house. The friend lives a couple of streets down.
Since nothing was missing from the house police only charged her with trespassing.
