MOUNT DORA, Fla. -

A central Florida woman says she woke up to find a suspected burglar asleep on her couch.

Police arrested the 26-year-old man Tuesday. He's charged with burglarizing several businesses before making his way into the Mount Dora home.

Orlando television station WFTV reports the woman heard snoring coming from the living room while she was making coffee. She found the man asleep on her couch, covered with a blanket. He had helped himself to a beer from her refrigerator before going to sleep.

When police arrived, they woke him up by removing the blanket. He was holding a butcher knife he had taken from the kitchen.

Police say they found evidence on him that linked him to three other burglaries and a car break-in.
