LORAIN, Ohio (AP) -- A burglar in Ohio picked a choice time for a break-in: While the targeted home's resident was in jail.

The Morning Journal of Lorain reported Sunday ( ) that 26-year-old Shawna Lowder had been arrested Friday for possession of drugs, paraphernalia, driving under suspension and failure to signal.

Her brother went to check on her house in the 1500 block of W. 24th St. early Saturday and found a window air conditioning unit pushed in and the apartment doors open.

A friend of Lowder's says he also approached the house and was chased off by a man with a gun.

Police said the thief made off with a $1,200 48-inch flat screen television, a $2,500 58-inch flat screen television, a $1,200 laptop computer and Lowder's PlayStation 3.

They've made no arrests.
