SAN ANDREAS, Calif., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Police in California said a burglary suspect was allegedly caught rummaging through a homeowner's cabinet wearing only a trench coat and socks.

The Calaveras County Sheriff's Office said Robert Allan London, 49, of San Andreas broke into a home Tuesday evening and allegedly used the house's sauna before the homeowner returned and discovered him rummaging through the kitchen while wearing only a trench coat and socks, the Calaveras Enterprise reported Monday.

Investigators said London fled, but the homeowner tackled him in the driveway and held him until deputies arrived around 7 p.m.

London told deputies he did not think anyone was living at the residence. He was taken to jail on suspicion of burglary, indecent exposure and possession of stolen property.

London was ordered held in lieu of $45,000 bail.
