Sarasota, Florida – What shouldn’t you do while burglarizing a home? Fall asleep in the owner’s bed. Dion Davis was arrested by the Sarasota County Sheriff’s department after breaking into a residence, stealing the owner’s property and taking a nap on the owners bed. Davis was found asleep by the homeowner’s maid who quickly called 911 to report the napping burglar. It appears that Davis gained access to the home through a kitchen window.
