SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (AP) — Authorities in Northern California say a burglar arrested in nothing but a trench coat and socks told investigators he had been using the homeowner’s sauna.

Forty-nine-year-old Robert London was arrested this week by Calaveras County Sheriff’s deputies after they responded to a report of a burglary at a home in San Andreas. He pleaded not guilty Thursday to burglary and possession of stolen property charges.

Sheriff’s Sgt. Chris Hewitt says arriving deputies found the homeowner on top of a nearly naked London on the driveway.

The homeowner had allegedly discovered London going through his kitchen cabinets and chased him out the door.

Hewitt says London told investigators he thought the house was vacant, and he had used the sauna there before.
