A woman who recently bought a house on Stillson Road in a foreclosure proceeding reported Sunday afternoon that someone broke into her home and flooded the basement by disconnecting a sump pump and a water hose to a washing machine.

Police said the basement was filled with 6 inches of standing water, causing damage estimated at $500. The woman came to police headquarters to report the burglary about 3:47 p.m. Sunday.

Police said there was no sign of forced entry to the house.
