SOMERSET COUNTY, Pa. (WTAJ) — A Philadelphia man is behind bars after police say he was found sleeping in another man’s car.

Warren K. Pleasant, 30, was found asleep in a man’s vehicle in his garage. The mechanic told police around 8:15 a.m. on January 20 that he went down to the garage, which was part of a company he worked for, to replace insurance cards for the company’s vehicles. The victim noticed a pair of shoes next to a vehicle, then noticed Pleasant in the driver’s seat sleeping.

The victim then called the police and, upon making the call, Pleasant woke up and told the victim he was on the run for murder.

After police arrived and spoke with Pleasant, he said he stayed in the garage for about 36 hours to stay out of the cold. He also told police he was “at large” on a burglary warrant.

Police have charged Pleasant with criminal trespassing and he is currently being held in the Somerset County Jail.

There are currently no charges against Pleasant for murder.
