HOUSTON, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- One woman has been arrested and a second is wanted for allegedly posing as real estate agents to burglarize a home in Houston, police say.

Rebecca Lynn Bench, 40, was arrested at her home in Baytown, KTRX-TV, Houston, reported Tuesday.

Police charged Bench with burglary of a habitation, alleging she and another woman posed as real estate agents and took items from a home in July while the residents left the women alone in the home.

The homeowners discovered items missing on their return.

Laura Kristen Campas, 41, is wanted for questioning.

Police believe the women may be connected to a similar burglary.
