BURKBURNETT (KFDX/KJTL) — Three Burkburnett, Texas, residents were arrested after a house was broken into and numerous items were taken, though one suspect claims all she did was eat a peach pie then fall asleep on the couch.

Vanessa Schraub, 37, Zachary Douglas, 66, and Kenneth Douglas, 53, are charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, burglary.

Wichita County deputies were notified by Burkburnett police last Saturday that they were at a home and had a female suspect detained.

Deputies said that suspect, Vanessa Schraub, admitted going into the house the night before but said she hadn’t taken anything out after eating a peach pie and falling asleep on the couch.

They found items taken from the house in a cart in the driveway and other things piled on the back porch.

Items missing were identified as a riding lawn mower, a chain saw and a pressure washer.

Deputies said Schraub told them her boyfriend was Zachary Douglas at an address where deputies said they had found previously stolen items.

When they arrived there, they said they found Douglas sitting on the riding mower, and Kenneth Douglas standing near a trailer with the pressure washer and other items in it.

Deputies said Douglas admitted taking the mower, pressure washer and other items including loose change from the home.
