OKLAHOMA CITY - An alleged burglar thought she'd almost got away with it until police found her hiding inside an Oklahoma City home. It happened November 28 near Southwest 26th and Shields.

The confrontation was caught on camera and the woman, along with three others, weren't so lucky.

"I hear you moving around in there. Come on out with your hands up," said officers as Oklahoma City police cautiously approached the home on the city's southwest side.

Officials said it was a home filled with folks who didn't belong there.

Alanna Rivera is one of four suspects that would eventually be arrested on a second-degree burglary charge.

The 22-year-old admitted she shouldn't have been there and told authorities it was her ex-boyfriend's home and she was just there to pick up her belongings. It's a story the victim would later deny.

And, she wasn't working alone.

"Whoever's inside that house needs to come outside with your hands up," a police officer demands in the video.

Sure enough, three others would be taken into custody.

Two of them, 22-year-old Erron Gaines and 28-year-old Shaneka Barnes, complied.

Police thought they were all clear. But, a closer look inside revealed 21-year-old Adrianna Rivera hiding in a closet.

Police said they found numerous items belonging to the victim in a nearby car.

As for the suspects who were arrested, each one faces a second-degree burglary charge.
