Man Charged With Breaking Into Home to Take Shower

When the homeowner woke up, the suspect left some of his clothes behind as he ran onto a nearby golf course.

A 40-year-old man accused of sneaking into a Placentia woman's home to take a shower on the Fourth of July has been charged with burglary.

Robert Marquez Jensen of Brawley in the Imperial Valley area was charged with a felony count of first-degree burglary and a misdemeanor count of receiving stolen property.

Placentia police were called about 7:30 a.m., Wednesday, regarding the break-in in the 1100 block of Powell Drive. A woman told police she was sleeping in her home when she woke up to the sound of her shower running, so she dashed out the door to call police.

Jensen allegedly shook a slider door until it opened and then walked past the slumbering woman and jumped in the shower, police said.

He was accused of stealing a wallet and a jacket, but left some of his clothes behind in the bathroom, police alleged.

Police responded to the 911 call in a minute and found the suspect on the seventh hole of the Alta Vista Country Club, police said.
