A suspect in the theft of handguns from a Wasilla home didn't get far, according to Alaska state troopers. He was found asleep in a vehicle parked in the home's garage, wearing a sweat shirt belonging to the woman who lives in the home.

      Hoof it over to Facebook to join the weird news herd.

Troopers on Sunday afternoon took a call of a burglary from Lisa Siepert, 38.

She reported that someone had entered her home and removed two handguns, food and alcohol.

When she looked in the garage, she found a strange man behind the wheel of her neighbor's vehicle.

Siepert told troopers the man was wearing her sweat shirt and that he was unresponsive.

Troopers said the suspect apparently entered the home, took the guns and broke the windshield of a pickup truck parked nearby to get inside it.

The suspect then went into the garage, broke windows out of the second vehicle and fell asleep inside.

Gary Olson Jr., 20, of Anchorage, was arrested.

He was charged with burglary, two counts of theft involving a weapon and two counts of criminal mischief.

He was transported to Mat-Su Pretrial with bail set at $50,000.
