California - Police say a naked burglar has been arrested while taking a shower after he sipped champagne and ate a meal in a Southern California family's home.

San Bernardino County sheriff's Sgt. Steve Wilson says 25-year-old Michael Calvert was arrested at gunpoint by deputies while he lathered up in the shower on Thursday night.

KCDZ radio says that after helping himself to a bottle of champagne and a meal, Calvert decided to take a shower in the Joshua Tree home. The Mojave Desert community is 210km east of downtown Los Angeles.

The homeowners called police after returning home at 20:10 and hearing someone in the shower.

Calvert was booked for investigation of residential burglary. He's in jail with bail set at $25 000 and was not available for comment.

    Maybe this should be a learning kerb for South African judges......Calvert was booked for investigation of residential burglary. He's in jail with bail set at $25 000 . High bails will bring down the crime rate south africa as well.
