“The man even made himself a bowl of cereal as well," the post alleged.

While it's claimed the family could see the funny side to a random showing up on their couch, the post warned for residents to “make sure your front doors, garage doors are locked.”

“This is a true story, that thankfully had a positive ending for the owners (perhaps not a great ending for the man who was picked up by the police) but could have ended very differently.”
