The Vancouver Police Department is reminding residents to lock their doors and windows after a bizarre break-in this week.
Here’s what happened: At about 7 p.m. on Tuesday, an east Vancouver man walked into his kitchen to find a naked stranger in there, just cookin’ up some eggs. When confronted, the naked intruder fled the house, probably still naked.
Apparently the man was in the home for 20 to 25 minutes, and likely even took a shower before being discovered in the kitchen.
Police later apprehended a 30-year-old Burnaby man “a short distance away,” according to a police statement.
“Ensuring your doors and windows are locked is a simple deterrent,” said Constable Brian Montague. “Don’t make it easy for someone to break-in to your house.”
Police are requesting charges of being unlawfully in a dwelling house, which is a real thing in the Criminal Code.
No word on how he prepared his eggs, although scrambled makes the most sense. I mean, you’re not gonna be making eggs benedict at someone else’s house without knowing where they keep all their ingredients and utensils.
