THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (KTLA) – A woman accused of illegally entering the Thousand Oaks home of a man she went on multiple dates with was arrested Sunday after firefighters used jackhammers to partially dismantle a brick chimney she had become trapped inside. The flue was lubricated with dish soap before she was lifted out of the chimney, placed in a stokes basked and hoisted from the roof by a ladder truck, according to VCFD Capt. Mike Lindbery. The woman, whose “intent was unclear,” was known by the homeowner, the Sheriff’s Department said.

She was later identified as Genoveva Nunez-Figueroa, a 30-year-old Thousand Oaks resident, and arrested for allegedly illegally entering a residence and providing false information to a peace officer, the VCSD stated in a news release.  The home’s resident, who did not wish to be identified, said he had met Nunez-Figueroa online and they had gone on about six dates. He cautioned other people about allowing acquaintances into their homes.

“Before you have somebody come in your house really check them out … really give it some time before you let somebody in, because they might want to stay,” he told KTLA.
