No this wasn't an animal, it was a human man that decided to trespass and let himself house early evening on Tuesday.

Yesterday was a busy day for me because after the morning show I went to the gym, ran some errands and worked around my house.

Now, because I wake up at 2:30am every day by about 4:00pm, I'm pretty tired. I don't normally take a nap, but I decided to because the rest of the week is going to be very busy for me.

I laid down around 5:00pm. At approximately 6:45pm an intruder entered my home and walked into my kitchen. He then proceeded to raid the fridge and eat anything he saw that contained sugar.

This person went through any candy or sweet food. There was a trail of brown sugar around our entire kitchen. He also went into my purse and ate the lollipops but didn't take any of my money.

It was extremely awkward but terrifying at the same time. To feel that there is a stranger, helping themselves to your food, in your home, is a strange and very scary feeling to have.

While this was happening, my wife and I were asleep. Once we woke up and noticed what had happened I ran outside immediately and starting to yell asking who just broke into my house. Let's just say, I am an action oriented person.

I was furious. I noticed a trail of brown sugar on the porch leading out to the stairs. It was beyond strange. I called Lewiston Police and they sent over Officer Olivia Bergeron who was able to figure out what happened with our help.

I am not going to reveal who this person is because there is no point in doing so. But I will tell you that even when you're home, you should lock your doors.

Even when you think you are safe, you may not be. I have security cameras hung all around the interior and exterior of my house, but they weren't activated at that time.

This is also very disturbing to me personally, because this has happened before. A past landlord of mine entered my house in the middle of night while we were sleeping and it has affected me. Prior to that another landlord would walk into our house without letting us know beforehand as well.

So let's just say, I am on edge today.

The door was unlocked because we were home and we didn't think we needed to lock it.

So from now on, I am locking everything.

I slept on the couch with a kitchen knife for about 38 minutes.

This situation could have resulted in something bad and I am taking this as a sign from the universe to become even more protective over my family.

One tip that a listener gave after I shared this on-air was, even if you don't have a dog or cameras in your house, you can put up signs saying you do so that intruders will second guess entering.

Lastly, as a woman, we are more vulnerable to situations like these and being aware of your surroundings and securing your home is so important.

Just like my friend, Officer Chase said, "The most valuable thing in your house is you".

So take care of yourself and think smart, call the police if something similar happens to you.

Thank you to Officer Fecteau and Officer Bergeron for assisting us with this last night.
