Stock Island – A woman who lives in an apartment on 7th Avenue returned home early Wednesday to find a man sleeping in her apartment. He was arrested for burglary.
The victim found 45 year old Amado Cardenas sleeping on her living room floor when she got home shortly after 7 a.m. She told deputies she tried to wake him, but he wouldn’t wake up so she called the Sheriff’s Office.
The house was disturbed; Cardenas had helped himself to alcoholic beverages, gone through her drawers and taken cash and medications from her. He had also tried to take her flat screen television off of the wall.
Cardenas said he thought he was in his ex-girlfriend’s house. His ex-girlfriend lives next door to the victim.
Cardenas was arrested, charged with burglary and theft and he was booked into jail.
