A man discovered a woman secretly living in his cupboard after setting up a camera.



Joe Cummings took action after noticing that somebody had been stealing his food and urinating in his kitchen sink and found that he had an unwelcome visitor in his home.

Camera footage shows a figure dropping out of a cupboard before using the sink as a toilet and opening the fridge so she could tuck into some food and drink.

Cummings, from New York, called the police and the woman was reportedly arrested. He believes that she had been living in the cupboard for a number of weeks.

He said: "I have no idea how she got in there. The only way in is through the window as I am on the top floor and there is a fire escape.

"The police think she was probably coming in to rob me when I was gone and decided to stay in the crawl space.

"Supposedly this isn't the first time the cops had come across something like this."
