SHENANDOAH, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman has been jailed on charges she broke into a neighbor’s home, where she was caught doing her laundry in the bathtub.

The Pocono Record ( ) reports 44-year-old Kelly Bancroft, of Shenandoah, was charged Tuesday and with burglary and criminal trespass.

A woman who lives down the street from Bancroft told police she went to use the bathroom about 4:30 p.m. and found Bancroft next to the tub, which was full of water, clothes and shampoo.

When the woman asked Bancroft how she got in the apartment, Bancroft locked the bathroom door and the resident summoned a neighbor to help. When that person arrived, Bancroft had run away, leaving wet clothes everywhere.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for Bancroft, who faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 22.


The dangerous Kelly Bancroft. Why does she rob bathrooms? 'It's where the water is.'
