Tennessee burglar caught red-handed resting in man's bed

CLINTON — Apparently high on drugs, a Clinton man was nabbed while allegedly taking a break from burglarizing a residence and was found lying in his victim’s bed early Thursday, authorities said.

Arrested was Michael Lee Smith, 31, who is charged with aggravated burglary and two counts of vandalism.

A resident of Edgemoor Road came home about 6 a.m. and saw that his van and motor home had been significantly vandalized and burglarized, with his possessions stacked on a nearby cart, Anderson County Sheriff Paul White stated in a news release.
