A couple woke up to find a half-naked man sleeping on their couch. Police said the sleeping burglar crawled into the house in Pierson after he crawled out of a bar.
The man they found is in jail, a Mexican national who had too much to drink and apparently made himself at home in the first home he found. It was as easy as popping off a screen, forcing open a window and Hugo Acosta had a place to sleep for the night."Still a little weirded out about it, but it's something I'll probably laugh about in about a week," said Jeremy Hinson.
Early Sunday morning, around 6:30, Jeremy walked past his couch and saw someone sleeping there. He thought it was his girlfriend, but then realized she was still in bed.
"I came back in here and looked, saw it was a stranger. By that time, it was when the fear set in," he said.
The couple came back out together with a gun and found Acosta, mostly naked, completely passed out.
"There was a guy on my sofa. He left his shoes and pants and everything else along the way," Brandi Bell said.
The sheriff's office said that, after a long night at a nearby bar, Acosta crawled in, scattered his clothes on the floor, grabbed food and something to drink from the fridge and even found a sheet from the closet to cover up with. He was quiet enough that only Brandi woke up after hearing a noise, but never bothered to check it out.
