MESA, Ariz. -

A woman was surprised to wake up in the middle of the night and find a 19-year-old man sleeping in a bedroom in her house early Monday morning.

Mesa police say a woman heard noises from an unlocked front door and found Brandon Jay Larsen sleeping in one of her bedrooms about two hours later.

When officers arrived to her Mesa home, they say Larsen had several clothing items over his arms and hands and wasn't responding to them.

Officers deployed a Taser to wake Larsen up. They say he appeared to be under the influence of drugs.

Police say Larsen told them he was cold and looking for a warm place to lay down.

He was taken to jail and booked on one count of criminal trespassing inside a residence.
