A couple was appalled when they returned home to find two people had broken into their home and were using the shower.
Kari Halen and her husband Glenn said the first thing that alerted them of the intruders was the awful smell that filled their Sacramento, California apartment.
‘The first thing that hits me is the smell. Sewer mixed with vomit mixed with BO mixed with dirty feet. Yeah, it made my eyes water,’ Halen said.

Upon inspecting the house, Halen realized that the intruders had turned every light on, as well as the oven and electric heater. They had also left some dog food from her fridge out to thaw.
The couple, later identified as Randy Malone, 51, and Mauricsha Williams, 31, told Halen that they had gotten the code to get into the apartment on Zillow.
‘What is the code?’ Halen said she asked Malone.
“‘Well that’s none of your business” he says… The man goes to me “you don’t have to call 911. Your door was open. I came in.”‘
Malone and Williams fled the house when Halen called police, but Glenn followed them outside and authorities arrested the pair a short time later.

‘He knew I was here. They were not surprised when I walked in the door!’ Halen said.
Glenn and his wife have already replace their back fence with a significantly taller one. Halen said she hopes jail time teaches the pair a lesson.
