An 18-year-old woman has been charged with breaking into the Atlanta home of filmmaker Tyler Perry.

Police said Perry’s bodyguard caught Chloe Ware early Thursday morning, but two others escaped. A phone listing for Ware could not be found. It was unclear whether she had an attorney.

She was charged with prowling and criminal trespass, then released. Police are still searching for two other suspects.

Perry directed this year’s film “For Colored Girls” and co-directed last year’s “Precious” with Oprah Winfrey.
