An alleged burglar in Sarasota County, Fla., was literally caught napping by deputies, who paused to take a few photos of the man snoozing next to a bag of jewelry before waking him up and taking him to jail. A maid called police when she discovered Dion Davis, 29, asleep on a bed Monday, reports the AP. He has been charged with burglary of an unoccupied dwelling and is being held on $10,000 bond, NBC 6 reports. (More burglary stories.)
