CROSSVILLE, Tenn., July 10 (UPI) -- Police in Tennessee said a homeowner reported he was distracted by a nude female swimmer while a male accomplice burglarized his home.

Crossville police said a 54-year-old resident of the Camelot neighborhood told officers he was speaking to a couple who live nearby around 3 p.m. Saturday when the man left to retrieve cigarettes and the woman asked for permission to take a nude swim in his pool, the Crossville (Tenn.) Chronicle reported Wednesday.

The homeowner told police he watched the woman swim in his backyard pool for about 20 minutes and went back in his home after the woman left and discovered a handgun, jewelry and prescription medication had been stolen.

The total value of the stolen items was estimated at $1,195.

The victim identified the suspects to officers, but they have not yet been located for questioning, police said.
