College student thinks she has a ghost in her apartment. It’s actually much creepier than that.

A female student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro believed that she had a ghost haunting her apartment. After all, she'd frequently find that some of her personal effects were either missing or misplaced, so it only made sense.

Except she didn't have a ghost — she had a live-in intruder hiding out in her closet.


The reported intruder, 30-year-old Andrew Clyde Swofford, lived in the unnamed student's closet and would often wear her clothing.

Authorities arrested Swofford on charges of breaking and entering as well as possessing stolen goods and larceny.

According to WGHP-TV, the young woman and the other women who live in the apartment had to have their locks changed in December after discovering two strange men in their apartment. The women's landlord did not file a police report after changing locks on the apartment, authorities said.

The women are unsure how Swofford entered the apartment, as they believe they were always on top of keeping the door securely locked after the December incident.

Needless to say, the young women said they don't feel safe in the apartment and are moving out.

Swofford has a court date set for Feb. 28.
