Man broke into cars, then fell asleep

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) — Massachusetts police say a man broke into several vehicles before falling asleep inside one of them.

Prosecutors say police found 30-year-old Paul Johnson asleep Friday morning in a minivan outside of an Attleboro home. Authorities say he told police he had been drinking the night before. Police say Johnson had stolen items from vehicles in the neighborhood along with several credit cards.

The Sun Chronicle reports Johnson was arraigned Tuesday in Attleboro on charges of breaking and entering in the nighttime, larceny and trespassing. Johnson is being held in lieu of $5,000 cash bail.

His attorney asked that Johnson get alcohol treatment.

He is due back in court on Nov. 6.
