MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP) – A southeastern Pennsylvania man charged with breaking into a neighbor’s house says he was only borrowing eggs to make breakfast.
The Bucks County Courier Times says Middletown police contend Christopher King didn’t have an omelette on his mind when he climbed through the window Tuesday morning.
Police who responded to the report of a burglary in progress say they arrived to find him walking out the front door. They say they found dresser and cabinet drawers and doors open throughout the house.
Detective Patrick Nicastro says King claimed he climbed through his neighbor’s window because he wanted some eggs for breakfast.
The homeowner told police nothing appeared to be missing.
King is charged with felony burglary and related charges. Online court documents don’t list an attorney for him.
