Police: Alleged burglar fell asleep on victim's couch

LADY LAKE, Fla., July 9 (UPI) -- Florida authorities said they arrested a burglary suspect found sleeping on the victim's couch with stolen jewelry in his pocket.

Lady Lake police said a homeowner walked into the Lady Lake home's living room Sunday to find Domonique Pinkard, 21, sleeping on the couch, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday.

"I've never broken into a home... But I don't think I would be able to fall asleep," police Chief Chris McKinstry said. "He [Pinkard] feels pretty comfortable in others' surroundings."

Investigators said Pinkard and Julian Evangelist, 20, forced a back door to the home open around 7:30 a.m. and Pinkard fell asleep on the couch while Evangelist was absconding with a TV.

"Evangelist apparently chose not to wake Pinkard, but left with the victim's TV instead. Pinkard awoke to police arresting him," McKinstry said.

McKinstry said Pinkard had some of the homeowner's jewelry in his pockets and he led them to Evangelist, who was found to be in possession of the remaining stolen property at his nearby home.

The men were charged with burglary and larceny grand theft. They were taken to the Lake County Jail.
