Police Storm House To Apprehend Burglar Hiding In Bathroom But Turns Out To Be A Robot Vacuum Cleaner

Deputies in Washington County, Oregon had a tense standoff with a robot vacuum.



An Oregon sheriff’s office entered a residential bathroom with guns drawn, prepared to confront a burglary suspect. Instead, they found a trapped robotic vacuum making a ruckus.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a Tuesday social media post that officers responded to a woman’s report that someone was locked in her bathroom. The woman could tell something was amiss — there were shadows visible under the door.




Deputies surrounded the house, called in a canine officer and repeatedly instructed the suspect to exit the bathroom.

Police heard “rustling” noises coming from the bathroom and reported that the noises became more frequent as they continued to issue directions. About 15 minutes after first responding, police entered the bathroom with guns drawn.




Police witnessed a very thorough vacuuming job being done by a Roomba Robotic Vacuum cleaner.
