Minn. DA: Teen stole to support her porn addiction
EAST BETHEL, Minn. (AP) — A Minnesota teen with an alleged porn addiction is accused of robbing her neighbor's home by squeezing through a doggy door.
Eighteen-year-old Amanda Rose Owens of East Bethel was charged Wednesday with second-degree burglary.
Authorities say the neighbor set up a surveillance camera after he noticed items missing, including a camera and $300. The criminal complaint says footage revealed Owens squeezing through the pet door.
Owens told investigators she broke into the house three times, always through the pet door.
She told them she stole items she thought she could pawn to help support her porn addiction. A St. Paul Pioneer Press report says the teen needed to pay for 20 to 30 porn DVDs she recently bought.
A phone number for Owens couldn't immediately be found Saturday.
