The man who was found naked under a child's bed in a Westminster home this weekend has been apprehended, reports the Pasadena Star-News. Edgar Antonio Lucha, 23, was "arrested Wednesday night at a Compton drug rehabilitation center," and "booked for investigation of burglary, indecent exposure and attempted lewd acts on a child." The homeowner had discovered the intruder hiding under his 10-year-old son's bed. Reports indicate Lucha allegedly "pulled on his pants and repeatedly apologized, saying he was on drugs." Investigators determined he had entered the premises by using a ladder to climb into a window.
