Woman woke up to intruder on her couch

MOUNT DORA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida woman says she awoke to find an intruder asleep on her couch.

Police say they arrested the man Tuesday at a home in Mount Dora and charged him in connection with some recent business burglaries.

Orlando station WFTV reports the woman heard snoring coming from her living room while she made her coffee.

She said she then found the man asleep on her couch, covered with a blanket, and that he had helped himself to a beer from her refrigerator before falling sleep.

When police arrived, they say they woke him up by removing the blanket and found him holding a butcher knife taken from the kitchen. Police say evidence found on the man linked him to recent burglaries and a car break-in.
