ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (PIX11/AP) — A New Mexico man faces charges after authorities say a couple found him naked and sleeping in their bed.
Investigators say 30-year-old Freddy Shelby of Albuquerque was arrested Sunday after the homeowners called police to report their unwanted mystery guest.
According to a criminal complaint, Shelby broke into the couple’s home through a window and grabbed a Sprite from the refrigerator before falling asleep in the master bedroom. Authorities say the homeowners found a disrobed Shelby in a deep sleep.
Apparently the couple were home at the time of the break-in, the woman, whose name was not given, was watching television upstairs with her husband.
“I just though that it was windy and the blinds were moving,” she told KRQE. “I remember that when I saw him in the bed, I was freaked out but as soon as I saw his clothes, I felt disgusted.”
Officers arrived and called to the man, but he slept through it. Authorities say Shelby woke up only after an officer ripped the blankets off him.
Shelby told officers he thought he was at his girlfriend’s house.
The woman said later she “Lysoled everything” after he was taken away.
Shelby was charged with breaking and entering. It wasn’t immediately known if he had an attorney.
