Vera Svechina, a self-described filmmaker and former stripper who allegedly stalked and tormented founder Mark Pincus last year, snuck into Google's Silicon Valley headquarters in March, leaving behind an angry letter and a Russian book, police told reporters Friday.

According to Reuters, Svechina has not been charged with a crime but investigations are ongoing.

"An administrative staff member returned to her desk and found a book in Russian as well as a letter addressed to the two founders," Mountain View police spokeswoman Liz Wylie told Reuters Friday, referring to Google co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page.

"It didn't make any sense," Wylie said of the letter. "They were the ramblings of somebody with some kind of condition."

After reviewing security footage and reading over the letter, Google staffers contacted police. But while police believe Svechina is not mentally well, they said that the angry letter did not constitute a criminal threat to the company or its founders.

Police have had run-ins with Svechina before. Last May, she filed a complaint against Google, saying that the search engine company was "inside her head, making her do things," police told reporters. founder Mark Pincus filed a restraining order against Svechina in March, after he claimed she was stalking him and threatening his wife and children.

Svechina was last seen in San Francisco, where police believe she was residing. They are currently unaware of her whereabouts.
