Sept. 13, 2011 at 2:16 PM

WICHITA, Kan., Sept. 13 (UPI) -- Police in Kansas say a would-be burglar didn't get around to finishing his crime, instead taking a shower and a nap in the home.

Wichita police said the 35-year-old homeless man, whose name was not released, collected items he planned to steal at the home Saturday afternoon, but never got the chance to leave with them because he was sleeping in a bedroom when the homeowners arrived, The Wichita Eagle reported Tuesday.

Police Lt. Steve Kenney said the couple called police and officers discovered the man, who had taken a shower and was partially dressed in clothing belonging to the husband, hiding in a closet.

The suspect was arrested and taken to the Sedgwick County Jail.
