Sheriff: California burglar falls asleep at high school

NORTH AUBURN, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say two burglars broke into a Northern California high school, stole items, but then hung around.

Placer County sheriff's officials say a school employee discovered one of the men on Monday morning asleep in a classroom at Chana High School in North Auburn. The other man was in a bathroom.

North Auburn is about 40 miles northeast of Sacramento.

The sheriff's office says the men — 27-year-old Kevin Thomas, of Fresno, and 25-year-old Travis Alexander, a Sacramento-area transient — broke windows to get into classrooms and filled two school-owned vehicles with computers, televisions and other stolen items.

But then authorities say they prepared frozen meals that they ate inside a classroom. They were arrested on suspicion of burglary and vehicle theft.
