Police in Sweden say a wanted man was found asleep in a bed in a furniture store north of Stockholm, per the AP. Police spokesman Tobias Ahlen says the staff at the Ikea store in Uppsala contacted the police Monday after they found the 25-year-old sleeping in the bed department. They weren't aware that he was wanted. Ahlen said Wednesday the officers found out that the man had stayed in the warehouse after closing. He was arrested for trespassing, and police then discovered that he was being sought for another, unspecified crime. (More weird crimes stories.)
