An intruder who made himself at home on the coast, in a stranger’s home, says it was part of his retirement plan.

Newport Police say Lenny Joe Fadness, a 52-year old drifter, had watched tv at the house, showered, and used the homeowner’s bed while he was gone.

When the homeowner returned to his house, he called 911.  Police say that when they arrived Fadness ran out the back door.

He later came back to the house.  After his arrest, Fadness said the whole thing was part of his retirement plan,  to get sent to prison.  He’s facing several charges, including burglary.
