A Miles Township woman woke up to her dog barking and trying to get out of the bedroom door before finding a man and a woman in her living room, according to state police at Rockview.
James Duffield, 19, said he entered the residence on June 10 to collect his personal items. The woman told a trooper neither Duffield or Tatiana Welsh, 18, were allowed in the residence. She also said the back door was open and both Duffield and Welsh had items in their hands.
Duffield was found about one mile away from the residence and initially told police he was hiking and had not been at the woman's residence. He reneged on that statement later when he said he was at the residence and the back door was already broken open.
Welsh told police she was sitting in the car waiting for Duffield to return before she grew impatient and went into the residence to "see what was taking so long."
Duffield and Welsh are both charged with one felony count of burglary, one felony count of robbery, one misdemeanor count of theft by unlawful taking and one misdemeanor count of criminal mischief. Duffield is also charged with two felony counts of criminal trespassing and one misdemeanor count of defiant trespassing.
The two were arraigned before District Judge Carmine Prestia, who set monetary bail at $50,000 for Duffield and $25,000 for Welsh. Neither posted bail and both are being detained at the Centre County Correctional Facility.
A preliminary hearing for each is scheduled for June 20.

A former Canyon Wings employee has been charged with burglary after stealing about $2,100 from the business, according to State College police.
A current employee discovered that about $1,900 was missing from the safe and cash register on April 17 and the rear window of the business, which is about 14-16 feet above the ground, was open.
A detective observed a series of electrical boxes and pipes leading up to the window and said the window could only be reached by climbing up the side of the building.
Several fingerprints were gathered, tested and found to belong to Dillon McKee. The 22-year-old's employment at Canyon Wings was terminated in October 2016 for various issues, according to police.
Surveillance footage recorded a second alleged burglary of about $200 on April 24.
McKee is charged with one felony count of burglary, one felony count of criminal trespassing and one misdemeanor count of theft by unlawful taking.
He was arraigned before District Judge Casey McClain, who set bail at $25,000 unsecured.
His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
