According to police Teana Hazel Murray, 28, and a man known to her drove from Dubbo to Orange on June 4 to spend a few nights away.
The pair arrived at the three storey property on Issac Drive, and forced open the lock box containing keys to the house, before unpacking their things.

At 2am the following morning the property manager returned to the premises and saw people inside.
Police arrived and found Murray and the man inside.

Murray was arrested and taken to Orange Police Station where she was charged with a string of ten charges including aggravated break and enter, possess prohibited drug, stolen goods in personal custody, and enter enclosed land without a lawful excuse.
Police said Murray told officers the garage at the property was open when they arrived, and she believed the property had been purchased by the sister of her co-accused.
She told police she discovered the drugs in the back of the car and placed them in her purse, and the found the cheque book at the back of a pub in Dubbo.
Police noted while there were not attempts to cash any cheques, the book had been written in with large amounts of money jotted down.
Defence laywer Bill Dickens said his client's life was in "disarray" when the offences occurred, however she was now living in Warren in a more "stable situation".
Magistrate Stephen Olischlager said while the court accepted the low level of seriousness of the offences, and her early plea of guilty, he said he was "concerned" with who she was associating with.
"Clearly the influences in your life aren't positive. You may need to consider where you stand," he said.
Murray was convicted and sentenced to a two-year community corrections order and fined $800.
