Naked burglar sneaks into Georgia home to do laundry

WOODSTOCK, Ga. (CBS News) – A naked man was arrested after breaking into a north Georgia home through a pet door, authorities said.

Cherokee County Deputy Joshua Watkins told CBS affiliate WMAZ that 28-year-old Jarred Lemming entered the home nude to shower, wash his laundry and to use the owner’s Wi-Fi.

The incident report said Lemming was spotted Wednesday climbing a neighbor’s fence and squeezing through the dog door at the back of the house.

Watkins said Lemming was still inside the home when deputies arrived. He told the deputies that he knew the homeowner, but didn’t notify him because he “did not want to bother him.”

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.

Deputies also found dog hair and scuff marks on his clothing, suggesting gained entrance through the dog door.

The homeowner confirmed Lemming’s story that he did stay with him in the past, but did not have permission to be there since he moved out last year.

Lemming was charged with burglary in the first degree.
