BROKEN ARROW — A second grade teacher in the Coweta school district and her daughter were arrested early Thursday morning for breaking into their neighbor's home, Broken Arrow police arrest reports say.

Rhonda Allison and Summer Oliver were both booked into jail on first-degree burglary complaints.

Police say the victim woke up to find Oliver in his home "stealing his personal belongings" and restrained her until police arrived at the house in the 400 block of South Elm Court.

The booking report says Oliver went to check on her mom, who lives a couple of doors down from the victim and went to confront the victim because he owed her $100.

Oliver told police she entered the home by opening the front door, which was unlocked, while the victim was asleep, police said.

Police said Allison walked over from her residence carrying a PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Wii, and approximately $400 cash and threw it in the victim's yard saying, "why are you arresting my daughter he can have it all back."

The victim, officials said, showed video from a camera on his front porch to police, which showed Allison and Oliver carrying the various items out from the victim's home back toward Allison's residence.

The camera footage does not show the front door of Allison's home, but it did show both Allison and Oliver walk out of frame directly toward the front door at a quick pace, police said.

Authorities said Allison originally tried to tell officers that she was asleep during the crime until police informed her about the footage from the video.

Allison and Oliver were booked into jail and have since been released after posting bail, booking reports stated.
