Unusual Burglar

(For politics, please scroll down)


From WTOP, dated April 9, 2016 (emphases mine):
WOODSTOCK, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a naked man was arrested after breaking into a north Georgia home through a pet door.

Cherokee County Deputy Joshua Watkins tells local news media that 28-year-old Jarred Lemming on Wednesday entered the home nude to shower, wash his laundry and to use the owner’s Wi-Fi. The incident report says Lemming was spotted climbing a neighbor’s fence and squeezing through the dog door at the back of the house.

Watkins says Lemming was still inside the home when deputies arrived. Deputies say Lemming claimed to have once lived in the home but moved out about a year ago.

Watkins says Lemming told police that he knew the homeowner, but didn’t notify him because he “did not want to bother him.” Lemming was charged with burglary.
One commenter to the above article opined:
Now this sounds like an industrious fellow. Even though he's so poor he can't afford a change of clothes he's keeping himself clean and up to date on his emails.
Checking those emails is a priority!

  2. McDonalds has free WiFi. Give this burglar the chair.

  3. I'm sitting on a neighbor's toilet, nude, commenting on an AOW post. Is this a great country or what!

  4. Kinda cute, if you ask me.

    As long as the eccentric fellow did no damage to the property, stole nothing, and and merely did precisely what the item reports, I think anyone who wants to see him "punished to the fullest extent of the law" is a mean-spirited prig.

    Of course there's probably a lot more to this than we've been told. I'd say it was more a mental health issue than anything seriously criminal.

    1. They are sure out there. May none of you good folks run into them.

  5. Update:

    Investigators said evidence at the scene didn't support Lemming's story, WMAZ reported. There was no clothing in the washing machine, the shower hadn't been recently used, and his phone was in his truck.
