Things got weird at a house off Corbin Avenue in Macon. A 22-year-old man returned home Feb. 24 and found a guy asleep on his couch. The back-door window had been shattered with a brick. The resident called the police and later told a Bibb County sheriff’s deputy that he knew the intruder. The resident said the man who’d broken in, a 32-year-old acquaintance of his, had been at his house the night before drinking beer. The next morning, the resident told the fellow he had to leave because the resident was leaving for work. Eight or so hours later, when the resident went back to his house, the 32-year-old was sprawled on the sofa. The sleeping man was reportedly wearing the resident’s clothes and, according to the deputy’s write-up, “intoxicated from drinking all of the beer in the home.” The deputy arrested the intruder on a burglary charge. On the way to jail, the guy told the deputy several stories about why he was in the house. He said he had been locked out and had to bust a window to get in only to be “jumped by 10 men” when he got inside, the deputy’s report noted. Asked why he had no scrapes or bruises, he told the deputy he was able to “cover” himself. Then he changed his story and said 50 detectives came by while he was outside and told him it’d be OK to go in and sleep. He also said he’d been smoking meth.
