A woman claimed she went to the wrong house after she was arrested for cooking naked and stealing items from a stranger's home in Peoria, police said.

According to police, Stacy Horton-Garcia went into a house through an unlocked door in the area of 91st Avenue and Peoria Avenue around 3 p.m. on July 11. She wanted to steal the homeowner's clothes from his closet, authorities said.

A surveillance picture captured her cooking food naked inside the home, police said. She also allegedly took a shower before the homeowner arrived home.
