    A sleepy burglar who broke into a Florida home was busted after he was caught napping on a bed inside, authorities said.

    Dion Davis, 29, faces a burglary of an unoccupied dwelling charge following his arrest Monday, the Sarasota Sheriff's Office said.

    Davis was being held on $10,000 bond Wednesday, jail records showed. It was unknown whether he has an attorney.

    According to the sheriff's office, a cleaning woman called deputies after she found Davis sleeping inside a home in Nokomis Monday morning.

    When deputies arrived, Davis was still passed out on the bed, a bag full of stolen jewelry sitting next to him.

    The deputies took a photo of Davis before waking him up and taking him into custody.
