Coaldale - Police say a Pennsylvania burglary suspect made himself at home, using the bathroom and watching TV while the woman who lived there screamed at him to leave.

Police in the Pennsylvania town of Coaldale say the woman was watching TV and waiting for a neighbour to bring her a newspaper when Scott Smith walked into the home uninvited.

The 45-year-old walked past her, used the bathroom, then went into a bedroom for long enough that she had time to call police.

When he emerged, he sat down in her recliner and began watching TV until police arrived to remove him.

Online court records show Smith remains jailed on burglary and defiant trespassing charges in the March 14 incident. Smith's attorney couldn't immediately be reached.
