A Westminster homeowner found something unexpected under the bed with the dust bunnies: A naked intruder. "After the homeowner discovered the suspect, the man promptly got dressed and left the house," explains the OC Register. "Police said it appeared he used a ladder to enter the home through a second-story window."

The intruder, however, did not remove any items from the home, and the authorities, and the homeowner, aren't sure what the suspect's intentions were. Police are searching for the man, who "is being described as a Hispanic male in his mid 20s, about 5 feet, 9 inches tall with a slender build." The homeowner, who was treated to a more, er, comprehensive view, noted that the suspect was also bald with a thick mustache and tattoo on the back of his neck.
