KEANSBURG, NJ (AP) — A tired burglary suspect was captured inside a central New Jersey home after authorities say he fell asleep on a couch.

Keansburg police tell the Asbury Park Press that Dennis Bannon of Middletown apparently broke into the home sometime Friday and stole a cellphone before taking his nap. He was discovered around 3:30 p.m. by the home’s owner, who called police.

Officers soon responded, but it took them several minutes to awaken Bannon. He’s been charged with burglary, theft, criminal trespass and possession of stolen property, and was being held on $20,000 bail.

It was not known Sunday if Bannon had retained a lawyer.
