It’s like Goldilocks but if Goldilocks got herself in some trouble.

A Schuylkill County woman was arrested earlier this month after police found her laying in someone else’s bed.

State Police in Frackville say they were called to a home on W. Coal St. in Shenandoah at about 5:30 a.m. on Jan. 19. Police say they got calls on a disturbance at two different homes.

At the first home, the resident there said a woman who appeared to be under the influence of some kind of drug – identified as 36-year-old Jennifer Chatcavage, of Shenandoah – came into his home twice.

Chatcavage left that home and fled on foot.

Police say they then got a call from another home on W. Coal St. The caller said a woman had just entered their home and ran upstairs to the bedroom.

When police finally caught up to this home invader, they found Chatcavage laying in the bed of the second home she entered.

Chatcavage was taken before District Judge Anthony Kilker and charged with a raft of crimes, including two felony burglary charges, and two felony criminal trespass charges.

Bail was set at $25,000 cash, which Chatcavage has been unable to post since her arrest. She remains in Schuylkill County Prison awaiting a Preliminary Hearing set for Feb. 27.
