Police say suspected burglar nabbed after he napped behind house

Police say they apprehended a suspected burglar because he decided to take a nap in the shed behind the victim's home on Saturday.

Daniel Chaconas, 68, (pictured) was booked in the Sacramento County Jail for burglary.

Shortly before 1:17 p.m. Saturday, police reported, a resident returned home in the 1300 block of 26th Street, found the house locked inside and went around to the back of the house. The owner saw the suspect and called police.

When they arrived, officers said they found Chaconas inside a shed on the property. They later determined that Chaconas had broken into the house, ate some food, and took a nap. He was awakened when the resident returned home.
