PRESCOTT - Sheriff's deputies in Yavapai County said a man picked the wrong place to take a nap, but he'll now have plenty of time to catch up on sleep.

Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn said in a statement that deputies responding to a burglar alarm at a gun and police accessories store in Prescott early Monday found an open window.

They found a 35-year-old man inside, smelling of booze and fast asleep. The man told deputies he had been driving and was just looking for a place to sleep.

Deputies found gloves and a flashlight belonging to the man, plus a bag containing expensive electronics he apparently planned to take.

The man was jailed on burglary, theft and identity theft charges, plus several warrants.
