Falling Asleep on the Job

This is like something out of the Darwin Awards, except for the lack of death or serious maiming in the story. Clearly the criminals in my hometown need to work on basic skills.

The following report is from the regional newspaper:

Police were called to the apartment of Juan Meza, who had gotten home from work shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday and found a strange man sleeping in his bed.

Power tools that belonged to the resident were in a pile by the front door.

After several attempts, police were able to rouse the sleeping man. He was identified as Albert Martinez, 19.

Police Chief John Stewart said Martinez “had apparently entered Meza’s residence, gone through his belongings and selected the tools he wanted. He then laid down for a nap before carrying away his spoils.”

Martinez was charged with burglary of a habitation, a second-degree felony. He is free after posting $2,500 bail.
