Clean Getaway: Naked Man Breaks into Home, Cooks Meal, Takes Shower

NEW YORK (CBS) "Naked, Hungry and Needing a Shower," is just one possible title for the sort-of-steamy surveillance video which captured an apparently intoxicated nude burglar who broke into a Louisiana home, cooked himself a meal, and showered – twice!

Can you say 'clean getaway?'

On the tape, the indiscreet intruder uses an outdoor garden hose to wash himself off in the driveway at about 1 a.m. on Oct. 5, according to a press release from the Slidell, La. Police Department.

Once feeling sufficiently cleansed, the man politely knocks on the front door, but getting no response, walks around to the backyard, the report states.

Clearly exhausted from the trip around the house, "the nude white male sits in a chair and puts on what appears to be a trash bag," the report states.

He then proceeds to break several rear windows and enter the home, where he "cooked himself some food and had a few drinks, before taking another shower in the home," according to the release.

The man, perhaps sensing a bit of a chill, eventually wrapped himself in a white bed sheet and made a modest exit, police said. He took nothing from the home aside from the sheet and the meal he fixed for himself.

The 61-year-old homeowner was out of town during the entire escapade.

Slidell police chief Freddy Drennan is hoping for the public's help in finding the suspect.

"It appears that the man is either drunk or under the influence of drugs," Drennan said in a statement. "We are hoping that the public recognizes the man and gives us a call. I would be interested to hear his story and why he was naked and what he was thinking."

That's assuming he was thinking at all.

Anyone with information on the identity of the nude burglar is asked to call the Slidell Police Department at 985-643-3131, or the detective in charge of the case, Daniel Seuzeneau, at 985-646-6172.
