Two 9-1-1 Calls...

An Oregon burglar didn't wait to be caught by the cops after breaking into a house -- he called them himself.

The intruder, 24-year-old Timothy Chapek, dialed 911 after the homeowner discovered him lurking in her bathroom.

"I just broke into a house and the owner came home," Chapek told the 911 operator, in a call obtained by The Smoking Gun. "I think they have guns."

"You broke into a house?" asked the confused operator.

"Why are you in my house taking a shower?" homeowner Hilary McKenzie can be heard asking in the background. "Who are you?"

"My name is Timothy Chapek," Chapek told her sheepishly.

"I broke in...I already called them," he added, when McKenzie threatened to call the police. "They're on the phone right now."

McKenzie then called 911 herself to report the intruder, telling the operator that Chapek was hiding in the bathroom.

"He said he broke in and he was kidnapped and he was taking a shower," she said, in another call posted by The Smoking Gun. "He's obviously nuts."

Chapek, who was arrested on the scene, is being held for criminal trespassing, according to The Oregonian.

A police report obtained by Reuters notes that Chapek, who told officers he was "taking a shower and nothing more" is "intelligent but conversation with him suggests mental issues of some sort."
