ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — An Albuquerque man is facing charges after authorities say a couple found him naked and sleeping in their bed.

Investigators say 30-year-old Freddy Shelby was arrested Sunday after the homeowners called police to report their unwanted, mystery guest.

According to a criminal complaint, Shelby broke into the couple's home through a window and grabbed a Sprite from the refrigerator before falling asleep in the master bedroom.

The home's owners found a disrobed Shelby in a deep sleep.

The complaint says officers arrived and called to Shelby, but he slept through it.

Officials say he only woke up when an officer ripped the blankets off.

Shelby told officers he thought he was at his girlfriend's house.

Shelby was charged with breaking and entering.

It was not known if he had an attorney.
