A stranger claiming to be a distant relative and asking to take a bath was removed from a Brodhead residence Wednesday afternoon by police, officials said.

Brodhead police responded just before 5 p.m. to reports of a woman who had entered a residence in the 1800 block of East Second Avenue, according to a Facebook post.

After speaking with several family members, the homeowner determined the woman was not a family member and called police, officials said.

Police identified the woman as 54-year-old Mary Morrison, of Dubuque, Iowa, according to the post.

The homeowner did not believe anything was taken, and requested Morrison be escorted from the property and warned for trespassing, officials said.

Morrison had theft and drug offenses in Iowa, according to Iowa authorities.

She was last seen driving a maroon 2002 Mazda four-door with Iowa license plates.
