NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Metro police have arrested a woman accused of breaking into a stranger’s Nashville home, drinking the resident’s wine, eating her snacks and then passing out in her kitchen.

Elizabeth Self, 38, was charged Monday evening with aggravated burglary.

According to an arrest affidavit, around 3:30 a.m. on April 25, a resident told officers she walked into the kitchen of her Nashville home, the location of which was not disclosed, and saw a woman she did not know passed out alongside an empty wine bottle and food wrappers, all belonging to the resident.

When the resident tried to wake the woman, identified by police as Self, she said the suspect did not know where she was and appeared to be under the influence of an intoxicant. 

The resident told investigators she obtained the suspect’s number by telling her she needed it to get her a ride.

When the resident called the number, she said Self’s cell phone rang.

The phone number was turned over to Metro officers who were able to use it to track down Self and arrest her, police said.

The resident reportedly told officers she had left her backdoor unlocked but that Self had to climb a fence to get to it.

Bond for Self was set at $3,500.
