A Delaware burglar is facing charges after being caught napping in a home and fleeing with a beer in hand.

Delaware State Police say a 63-year-old woman in Long Neck woke up Tuesday to find her front door open and someone sleeping on her couch. The homeowner told the man she would be calling police. The man ran out with a beer - one of several he apparently consumed at the house.

Police say a state trooper later found 29-year-old Bradley Furchak of Millsboro walking along a road, drinking the beer.

Furchak is charged with burglary, theft, drug and alcohol charges.
