HAPPY VALLEY, OR (KPTV) -

Deputies who thought they were searching for a burglary suspect determined that a woman caught on camera entering a Happy Valley home was actually invited inside by an 18-year-old who is now charged with patronizing a prostitute.

On Monday, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office released surveillance images of the alleged burglary suspect and asked for the public's help tracking her down.  

The initial report was that the woman entered the home through an unlocked door and stole around $200 from an upstairs bedroom nightstand at 1 p.m. Sunday.

The homeowner's 18-year-old son was in the house at the time, but stated he didn't remember anything suspicious occurring and was listening to music through headphones during the alleged burglary.

Investigators said Tuesday that his story was made up.  

Detectives said Ethan Kwon invited the woman in the surveillance video into his family's home. Kwon is now facing charges of initiating a false report and patronizing a prostitute.

A jail booking photo of Kwon was unavailable Tuesday afternoon.

Deputies are still working to identify the woman seen in the surveillance video.

Anyone with information about this investigation is asked to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office.
