East Tennessee burglary suspect caught napping

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Law officers in East Tennessee didn't have to look far to find their suspect in a home burglary. He was asleep in his car, parked outside the house.

Washington County Sheriff's Department officers said a 16-year-old boy leaving for school Tuesday morning found the doors open on all four of his family's cars in the garage.

Officers arrived to find Jeffery Edward Allen Love asleep in his vehicle.

Deputies said Love broke a window to get into the garage.

He's charged with aggravated burglary, four counts of auto burglary and resisting arrest.
