The unidentified woman says she heard strange noises coming from the attic over the weekend. That's when she had her nephew check out what was happening upstairs.
Lo and behold, the woman's old flame was up there, sleeping in the heating unit.
The man ran downstairs and out of the home before police could get there.
It gets creepier. Police say it appears the man rigged the ceiling vents so he could peer into the woman's bedroom.
The ex-boyfriend was convicted of stealing the woman's truck earlier this year. He finished serving that sentence and had just been released from jail two weeks ago.
