A 28-year-old Modesto man was arrested early Tuesday, Feb. 16 after homeowners found him inside their house after he helped himself to a bowl of cereal and fell asleep in a chair.

The occupants in the 1600 block of Richland Avenue found Markus Durham inside their home, woke him up and told him to leave. When he refused and fell back asleep they called police at 6:23 a.m.

Officer Aaron Pinon arrived and recognized Durham and arrested him for burglary. The suspect did not make any statement as to why he was inside the strangers’ residence.
