JOSHUA TREE, Calif. (AP) — Police say a naked burglar was arrested while taking a shower after he sipped champagne and ate a meal in a Southern California family's home.
San Bernardino County sheriff's Sgt. Steve Wilson says 25-year-old Michael Calvert was arrested at gunpoint by deputies while he lathered up in the shower Thursday night. He offered no resistance other than dropping the soap.
KCDZ radio says that after helping himself to a bottle of champagne and a meal, Calvert decided to take a shower in the Joshua Tree home. The Mojave Desert community is 130 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
The homeowners called 911 after returning home at 8:10 p.m. and hearing someone in the shower.
Calvert was booked for investigation of residential burglary. He's in jail with bail set at $25,000 and was not available for comment.
