Coraopolis police: woman charged after breaking into home, falling asleep on couch
Coraopolis police have charged a woman after they say she allegedly broke into a home and slept on a couch.
Early Sunday morning, Tenesha Fisher tells Channel 11 that she fell asleep watching TV in her living room, but when she woke up, she discovered that she wasn’t alone.
“I look and there is really a little white girl laying on my couch,” said Fisher.
Fisher captured a picture of the intruder sleeping just feet away on her clean laundry and wrapped in her aunt’s funeral blanket.
Fisher immediately called the police.
“I walked them in, and they were just ‘hum’ and I’m like, ‘I know right,’” said Fisher.
Coraopolis police identified the woman as an intoxicated Kelly Bridger. Bridger told police her grandmother once lived in Fisher’s home.
“You know, it’s not Grammy’s house and there is a big Black woman asleep, right here by herself,” said Fisher.
Fisher believes her front door wasn’t closed, probably giving Bridger the opportunity to walk inside.
“Sometimes when you slam it, it doesn’t go all the way,” said Fisher.
Fisher tells Channel 11 that to make matters worse, Bridger has taken to social media to make light of what was a scary situation for her and her daughter, who was home during the time of the incident.
“She is making it seem like it’s OK because her grandmother lived here. You don’t walk in people’s houses,” said Fisher.
“She could have come in violent, she could have come in swinging. She could have come in with a knife.”
Bridger has been charged with criminal trespass.
