Berkeley resident Nao Hamada Myers was arrested by Berkeley Police Department for allegedly breaking into a North Berkeley home at about 6 p.m. Friday, according to a BPD Nixle alert released at 12:05 p.m. Tuesday.

Myers, a 41-year-old homeless man, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and probation violation, according to the alert.

An elderly resident discovered the burglar in his home after he returned and saw an empty Doritos bag and a used drinking glass in his kitchen, the alert said. He then called BPD.

The burglar likely entered using a hidden key outside of the home, according to the alert, and appeared to have taken a shower by the time the resident found him. The burglar was also allegedly wearing the resident’s clothes after placing his own clothes in the resident’s laundry hamper, according to the alert.

Myers was allegedly still in the master bedroom, where the resident originally saw him, when BPD arrived, the alert said.
