A homeless man who allegedly broke into an office building was found asleep in front of an office refrigerator with peanut butter smeared on his face, police said.
Newport Beach police arrested the 45-year-old transient Wednesday after responding to an early morning burglary call in a nearby building near Fashion Island. Officers found Donald E. Morin asleep and allegedly in possession of items missing from the office to which police had been called.
Police are holding Morin on charges of commercial burglary for breaking the glass window on the building at 567 San Nicolas Drive and taking $30 in cash and some credit cards, said Sgt. Andy Gonis, community relations officer.
Police said Morin, who at first gave the police a false name, has an outstanding warrant on a $394 traffic fine.
