HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Most burglars typically try to get in and out as fast as possible. Houston police said a duo they recently arrested had no such plans.

Officers charged Atalanta Herrick and Nehemiah Byrd with burglary after a woman found them asleep on her patio.

The incident happened Tuesday afternoon at a property off Evanston Street.

She was in the process of moving out and when she returned home, officers said the woman noticed a broken bathroom window. She discovered her belongings had been moved.

Tonight, Herrick and Byrd are resting their heads in the Harris County jail.

Both have prior criminal records.
