A Rockville Centre woman faces a burglary charge after Nassau County police said they found her inside a Levittown home early Thursday, walking down a stairway.

A neighbor called police at about 1:50 a.m., telling them a woman was on the roof of a home on Flamingo Road.

When police arrived at the home, they saw the woman inside a second-floor bedroom.
