KHQ MD ALERT: Flu Hits Peak Levels In Washington

MOUNT DORA, Fla. (AP) - A Florida woman says she awoke to find an intruder asleep on her couch.


Police say they arrested the man Tuesday at a home in Mount Dora and charged him in connection with some recent business burglaries.


Orlando station WFTV (

) reports the woman heard snoring coming from her living room while she made her coffee.


She said she then found the man asleep on her couch, covered with a blanket, and that he had helped himself to a beer from her refrigerator before falling sleep.


When police arrived, they say they woke him up by removing the blanket and found him holding a butcher knife taken from the kitchen. Police say evidence found on the man linked him to recent burglaries and a car break-in.
