PHOENIX — Two women find a trespasser eating soup and cooking tortillas in their kitchen.

Phoenix police report that on March 1 they responded to an apartment near 51st Avenue and Indian School Road for a reported burglary.

When they arrived, they reportedly saw 31-year-old Jerry Christopher Drane on an apartment balcony. Police detained Drane who they say was intoxicated at the time.

One resident allegedly told police that she was in her bedroom when she smelled something burning in the kitchen. When she went to investigate she saw Drane cooking tortillas on the electric stove and eating a can of soup.

She called out to her roommate, who told her that she didn't know Drane either. The ladies yelled at Drane to leave.

He went out to their balcony while continuing to eat the soup.

Drane was arrested for criminal trespassing.
