Tempe police reported the following incident Thursday:

A woman was arrested March 18 on the 2000 block of South Hammond Drive on suspicion of second-degree burglary and theft, according to a police report.

The woman had entered her ex-boyfriend's unlocked rear door to his residence without his permission, police reported.

She then went into his bedroom and removed two firearms, an iPad and an iPhone, and sent a photo of the iPad and two firearms to the man’s phone, according to the report.

The man returned to his home later on and noticed that those items were missing, police reported.

After officers contacted the woman, she came back to the residence and returned the items, according to the report.

She said she was aware of the man’s absence while she entered his home, according to the report.

The woman was transported to Tempe City Jail, where she was booked and held to see a judge, police reported.
