Here’s a new twist to the phrase “sleeping on the job.”
Cristian Villarreal-Castillo was charged with burglary and theft in Rockcreek, Oregon after apparently falling asleep mid-crime last Friday. A resident stumbled across Villarreal-Castillo sleeping on his kitchen floor in the wee hours of the morning.
According to The Oregonian:
Upon arrival, the deputies found the residence had been ransacked in an apparent attempt to steal valuables. Deputies believe Villarreal-Castillo entered the residence through an unlocked door but fell asleep while he was gathering items.
Police found other items apparently stolen elsewhere on Villarreal-Castillo, including a GPS system and several electronics. Police believe that the alleged perpetrator had carried out another burglary just hours earlier. It’s unclear what caused Villarreal-Castillo to fall asleep during the failed raid.
Currently, his bail is set at $100,000.
