Police: Pa. man wakes to stranger sleeping on his kitchen floor

Pennsylvania

ALTOONA, Pa. (AP) – Police say a Pennsylvania man awoke to find a stranger sleeping on his kitchen floor surrounded by torn-up sanitary napkins.

Altoona police say they arrested 60-year-old Brian Smith on Thursday after the homeowner called police when he found Smith in his kitchen. The Altoona Mirror reports Smith was unconscious and surrounded by destroyed sanitary napkins.

The homeowner told police it also appeared someone had eaten some of his cereal. He says he locked all his doors and windows before going to sleep around 11 p.m. Wednesday.

Police say Smith told them he used methamphetamine within the last two days, and was unable to explain how or why he entered the house.

He’s been charged with burglary and trespass. There was no attorney listed for him in court documents.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
