Sheriff's deputies in Washington County, Oregon bust in, guns drawn, after a woman reported that a burglar was in her house, only to find a Roomba robotic vacuum just doing its job, CNN reported.
The woman told police dispatch that an intruder was in her bathroom and had locked the door, but she could see shadows moving underneath.
Sheriff deputies surrounded the house within seven minutes. They heard a "rustling" noise coming from the bathroom and gave commands to the "intruder" with a loudspeaker.
After ten minutes with no response, deputies burst in to the bathroom with their guns drawn and found a Roomba vacuum cleaner and a very clean floor.


The Washington County Sheriff's Office later announced the capture of the rogue Roomba on their Facebook page.
