SEATTLE, July 11 (UPI) -- Even if you "ain't afraid of no ghost," you may want to be wary of "meth rampages."

A Seattle couple called police after they returned to their condo and discovered that it looked like a scene from Paranormal Activity.

The place was completely trashed and their mail and clothing had been strewn throughout the home.

The unknown perpetrator had also "smeared lotion on a door handle, removed the inner soles from all of their shoes, screwed a single screw into a piece of scrap wood and placed an upside-down can of paint on top of their toilet."

After a purse with a 27-year-old woman's ID card was found, Seattle Police Department officers were called to the scene. The woman was nowhere to be found, so they departed.

Police returned after the couple called them back to the scene when they started hearing noises from under the bed.

The mystery woman appeared "to be having a panic attack."

According to the SPD, "the woman informed police she had been on a 'meth rampage' for several days and had also broken into another home around the block earlier in the evening."

She was arrested and booked for investigation of burglary.
