Nex Mexico Man Breaks Into Home, Bakes Potato
HOBBS, N.M. (AP) — A New Mexico man is facing charges after police say he walked into a home, stole car keys and was found baking a potato and raking leaves.
The Hobbs News-Sun reports 45-year-old Patrick Lynn Waits was arrested early Tuesday following a bizarre chain of events that confused residents of a Hobbs home.
According to police, an intoxicated Waits entered the unlocked home and woke up residents while he wiped down a kitchen countertop and baked a potato.
When told to leave, a criminal complaint says Waits walked outside and started raking leaves in the front yard.
Waits was arrested on burglary and unlawful entry charges. He also faces several felony warrants for failure to appear in court.
It was not known if Waits had an attorney.
