BERKELEY, CA. – A homeless man was arrested after breaking into a home and being caught by the resident as he was getting out of the shower dripping wet.
On Friday, June 8, 2018, at around 6:00 p.m. an elderly Berkeley, California resident returned home from being out briefly. When he walked into his kitchen, he noticed an empty Doritos bag in his kitchen and a drinking glass sitting on his counter. The man was bewildered, knowing that he did not eat the Doritos or leave the used glass on his counter prior to leaving his home. The resident decided to look around his home to see if he could figure out what was going on. He walked into his bedroom where to his surprise, a male, later identified as Nao Hamada Myers, 41, was standing there dripping wet. The floor in his bathroom was also wet, indicating that Myers had just taken a shower.
Fortunately, when undressing, rather than tossing his dirty clothes on the floor, Myers placed them in the resident’s clothes hamper. The resident, in fear for his safety, left the home and called 911. Officers from the Berkeley Police Department responded to the home where they found Myers inside the master bedroom fully dressed in the resident’s Dockers dress shirt, Lands End dress pants, and his belt. Myer was arrested for burglary and a probation violation.
Officers consequently arrested the man (Nao Hamada Myers, Male, 41, Berkeley Homeless) for burglary and violation of probation. Berkeley Police officials said that although around half of all burglars enter the homes through unsecured doors and windows, Myers is believed to have entered using the resident’s key which was hidden outside of the home.
