Arrested: Landlord caught in tenant's home

VELMA, Okla._A Stephens County landlord is behind bars after being accused of breaking into the home of one of her tenants.

Caroline Halpin was arrested Thursday, October 22, after someone called sheriff's deputies about a home in Velma being burglarized. When deputies arrived, Halpin told them she lived there. They say she did have a title, but it showed she was actually the landlord. Deputies found drugs in Halpin's possession and took her into custody.

Hours later, the renters called the sheriff's department and said they returned home to find their groceries and several household items missing.

Halpin now faces several charges.
