(KMOV) – A couple came home on Sunday to discover a stranger in their home wearing only his underwear.
Investigators say Matthew Perks claims he was working for a pipeline company near Wood River, Illinois on Sunday. It was a hot day, and investigators say Perks jumped a fence to swim in the couple’s pool.
The 24-year-old then reportedly broke into the house to get something to eat.
He has been charged with burglary.
