NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. - Mounties say they arrested a man who decided to take a nap after breaking into a North Vancouver apartment.

RCMP say the 24-year-old Surrey man broke into the home and helped himself to food and personal items.

Police say the man put some items in a backpack and fell asleep on the couch.

Cpl. Richard De Jong says the homeowner arrived to find a strange man snoozing away and wearing his T-shirt.

He says the man was "certainly surprised" to wake up and see police.

The man accused of break and enter will remain in custody until he makes a court appearance.
