A 33-year-old homeless man broke into a Colorado home on Monday, wrote notes asking for help, helped himself to Oreos and milk, and then woke up two sleeping children to ask for assistance. The Daily Sentinel reports that Matthew Keith Dunham was arrested on charges of second-degree burglary, criminal mischief and theft.
The homeowner told police that he learned of the man's presence when one of his children woke him up and said there was a stranger in the house. He then dragged the man out of the house and called the cops. Dunham told authorities that the last thing he remembered was being at a truck stop, receiving $15 after asking for food and water, and then using the money to buy a bottle of vodka. He is set to appear in court on April 28.
