that he was the one who needed to leave. The resident called police. They arrived

At about 7:30 Saturday morning, a resident of the 500 block of Fifth Street
called police to report an unknown man asleep on his couch. This intruder had
broken the glass in a back door to gain entry, had taken off some of his clothes,
and went to sleep. Police found him, still on the couch, and arrested the
23-year-old Brookings man for intentional damage to property and illegal entry.
