Imagine waking up to find two people in your home. That’s what one Lake Charles woman says happened to her Tuesday morning.

Karen Barker says they came through her unlocked gate and made their way to her backdoor just after midnight, KPLC reports.

“They just very gently opened it," Baker told KPLC. "Didn’t make a sound and left it open. Then they came in the house.”

Barker says they went through her entire home; they went to the entryway where they turned around one of her surveillance cameras around and they went upstairs, KPLC reports.

KPLC reports that two teenagers arrested by State Police in Opelousas have admitted to being in her home; the investigations are continuing.
