It's a twist on the Goldilocks story - except instead of being run off by a family of returning bears, the sleepy culprit ended up in cuffs.

Authorities in Mesa, Arizona, have arrested a man after a homeowner found him sleeping in one of her bedrooms. Police say she heard a noise from her unlocked front door late Sunday night, She ended up finding a man asleep in a bed.

Police say 19-year-old Brandon Jay Larsen was still stretched out with clothes over his arms and hands when officers arrived. The Arizona Republic reports Larsen told police that he was cold and looking for a warm place to lay down.

He has another place to lay his head now - he was booked into Mesa City Jail. No word on whether he found the bed, too hard, soft, - or just right.
