Police: Man sneaks into home, hides under bed for 3 days

SPOTSWOOD, N.J. (AP) — Police say a man sneaked into a central New Jersey home and hid under a bed in a spare room for three days before the homeowner realized what had happened.

Spotswood police say Jason Hubbard was charged with burglary in the incident, which occurred in May but wasn’t made public until this week. He’s also charged with theft of services because he allegedly charged his four cellphones in an electrical outlet under the bed.

Authorities say Hubbard entered the home May 7, when the homeowner took out the garbage. He stayed in the spare bedroom until the homeowner heard a noise in the room and spotted Hubbard.

Hubbard remained jailed Wednesday on $50,000 bail. His age and hometown haven’t been released, and it’s not known if he has an attorney.
