(Newser) – Weird: A Pittsburgh-area police officer is accused of breaking into a neighbor's home. Weirder: Officer Jason Rocco allegedly did so ... so he could wash his clothes. A local station reports that the home's owner noticed his electric bill was unusually high, given that he hadn't lived in the house for months. When the owner visited, investigators say he found the dryer running with Rocco's clothes inside.

Avalon police who questioned Rocco say he told investigators the home's back door was already broken and he "just had to do some laundry." He is now charged with trespassing and criminal mischief.
