(Meredith) - An Ohio woman was acting "very strange" when she broke into a family's home this week, according to authorities.

The woman, identified as Cheyenne Ewig, allegedly entered the home in Hamden, Ohio, through the back door Monday morning.

She then sat down on a couch and began to pet the family's dog before getting up to wash the dishes, the Vinton County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. 

The homeowner called police to report the break-in and noted that the woman was acting very strange before she fled the residence.

Later that day, the sheriff's office said it received another report about a woman, who matched Ewig's description, knocking on doors in the same neighborhood. 

Deputies later arrested Ewig and said she appeared to be under the influence of narcotics. Ewig also told authorities that she hadn't slept in two days.

She was booked into the South Eastern Ohio Regional Jail on a burglary charge.
