Burglar Hides In House For Three Days After Break-In

A New Jersey homeowner discovered an intruder under a bed in a spare bedroom three days after he broke in.

Authorities confirmed late Tuesday that police responded to a 911 call just before 7 p.m. on May 10, WABC reported. The intruder was identified as Jason Hubbard, but his age and hometown are unknown.

Police found Hubbard in the home when they arrived at the scene. Through further investigation it was revealed that he allegedly entered through an open door three days earlier as the resident took out the trash.

According to NBC, the man took advantage of a nearby electrical socket to charge his four cellphones during the time he spent under the bed.

Hubbard was only discovered when the homeowner heard a noise from the spare room and looked under the bed to check what was causing it.

Police initially charged Hubbard with criminal trespassing. However, after more details came to light, authorities added a burglary and a theft of service charge to the list.

Hubbard is currently being held on a bond of $50,000. It is not known if he has an attorney or when he is due to appear in court.
