MOUNT DORA, Fla. (AP) -- A central Florida woman says she woke up to find a suspected burglar asleep on her couch.

Police arrested the 26-year-old man Tuesday. He's charged with burglarizing several businesses before making his way into the Mount Dora home.

Orlando television station WFTV (http://bit.ly/1bKVvTb ) reports the woman heard snoring coming from the living room while she was making coffee. She found the man asleep on her couch, covered with a blanket. He had helped himself to a beer from her refrigerator before going to sleep.

When police arrived, they woke him up by removing the blanket. He was holding a butcher knife he had taken from the kitchen.

Police say they found evidence on him that linked him to three other burglaries and a car break-in.
