Crime tip: Burglars shouldn’t fall asleep on the job
A Bonifay man had first court appearance this week after being charged with four counts of burglary, including one in which authorities said he was found asleep on the victim’s bed.
Responding to a 9-1-1 call at an Armstrong Street residence early Dec. 22, Bonifay police and Holmes County Sheriff’s Office deputies found Patrick Richard Hazell, of 801 Banfill Ave., asleep on a bed, according to a Bonifay police spokesman.
The occupant of the residence told police he discovered Hazell asleep, holding the occupant’s loaded .22-caliber handgun. A number of the occupant’s personal items were on the bed with Hazell, the spokesman said.
