Sleeping student arrested

Marcus Pena, 20, was arrested early Friday on suspicion of first-degree trespassing and criminal mischief after Grand Junction officers were called to a burglary in progress just after midnight Friday at 484 N. Sherwood Drive.

Police said a 911 caller reported hearing someone rummaging in the house after hearing glass break, an arrest affidavit said. Officers found a rear window broken out, and a man on a bed curled up under a comforter and sleeping.

The occupants of the home said they didn’t know him. Pena, who appeared intoxicated, said he lives in Mary Rait Hall on the campus of Colorado Mesa University. He declined to be interviewed by officers.
