Elina Sarkisian Calls Police To Report Home Invasion; Intruders Prove To Be Hallucinations

Police responding to a Skokie, Ill. woman's 911 call quickly arrived at two conclusions: One, the home invasion she had reported was a product of hallucinations and two, the alleged victim was high on heroin.

Elina Sarkisian, 22, met police outside her home on Leamington St. around 1:30 p.m. Friday and repeated her story that there were two unknown men in her apartment, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Once inside her home, police found no intruders, but did discover a powdered substance they believed to be heroin, CNews reports. Sarkisian told police she'd taken heroin after using crack cocaine to help her "come down."

Sarkisian confessed to police that the men could have been hallucinations, and said there had been ten people she didn't recognize in her home earlier, the Tribune reports.

The woman has been ordered held on a $50,000 bond after she was booked into Cook County Jail Saturday.
