MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis woman was arrested after she and her boyfriend allegedly broke into the home of her boss.

The victim told police he left his Ross Road home around 11:40 p.m. on March 17 and returned before 3 a.m. the next morning to find his back door had been kicked in. His home was ransacked but it didn’t appear that anything was taken.

She was located a week later and charged with aggravated burglary.

According to police, Willis’ boyfriend Robert Williams was also arrested after he admitted to breaking open a door at the home and then waiting as a lookout.

He was arrested on Wednesday and also charged with aggravated burglary.
