HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) — A woman who reported being robbed has been arrested in Delaware — on burglary charges.

The Delaware State News reports 47-year-old Pamela M. Watkins called police Friday, saying she was being robbed at a business. According to a Harrington police statement, police responded to a report of a burglary at a home as officers interviewed Watkins.

Based on the description of the burglary suspect, police brought Watkins to the home, where she was identified as the suspect.

Police say Watkins had asked to use the phone at the home and then tried to force her way inside before fleeing. She was allegedly intoxicated.

She is charged with third-degree burglary. The newspaper didn't include comment from Watkins or a representative, and it's unclear whether she was robbed at the business.
