FORT MYERS, Fla. — A homeowner was robbed Wednesday morning by a burglar who had fallen asleep on his floor beforehand.

Craig Barton, a resident of Bayshore Mobile Home Park, said he found the suspect asleep on his floor.

When Barton woke him up, the suspect grabbed money off the coffee table and ran out the back door.

Investigators are still searching for the suspect.
