Suspected burglar falls asleep on the job

MOUNT DORA, Fla. (AP) -- Sometimes breaking into people's homes can wear a person out.  
A woman in Florida says she awoke Tuesday to find a burglar asleep on her couch. The woman in Mount Dora tells WFTV in Orlando that she could hear snoring coming from her living room as she made her coffee. There, she found a strange man asleep on her couch, and covered with a blanket. 
She says he also helped himself to a beer in her refrigerator before taking a snooze. 
Police had to wake the man up when they arrived. Authorities say he's a suspect in other burglaries.
