ORANGE - Police in Orange say a mother and daughter from Bridgeport face charges following a bizarre home break-in.

Police say Peggy Curtiss, 35, walked through an unlocked door of a home on Orange Center Road yesterday morning, but the homeowners quickly escorted her out of the house.

Officers say Curtiss then used a Christmas decoration to break a window and crawl into the house again, which prompted the homeowner to leave and wait for police.

They say officers had to Tazer Curtiss to remove her from an upstairs bathroom.

Officers say they found the woman's mother in a car in the driveway at the time of the incident and she also is charged.
