A 23-year-old woman was arrested Monday evening after she allegedly broke into her dad’s house and transferred money from his bank account to hers, according to a police report.

The Denton Police Department responded to a suspicious activity call around 6:09 p.m. in the 500 block of West Parkway Street. A man called police to report he believed his daughter had gained entry to his home and stole $1,000 from him by logging into a computer at his home and transferring money from his bank account to hers.

Officers arrived at the home and saw a woman in the backyard as well as a broken backdoor window. The woman allegedly told officers she had permission to break into the home because she lived there alone.

While one officer stayed with her, the other left to call her father. In that time, she allegedly ran into the house and locked the deadbolt, according to the report. Because the backdoor window was opened, officers were able to go inside and detain her.

Police spoke with the caller who said his daughter didn’t live at the home and didn’t have permission to be there. According to the report, the woman told police she had been “in a fog” and didn’t remember everything.

She was arrested and charged with burglary of a habitation.
