NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) — Police in Pennsylvania say officers found a couple asleep in a garage with the light on after a homeowner reported a burglary.

New Castle police tell the New Castle News (http://bit.ly/1MKLvZB) that they found the couple early Saturday, shortly after the homeowner called them.

Police say the homeowner had gone downstairs and found a glass jar containing cash missing, some furniture moved and cabinets opened. She also found her safe on the back porch, her purse missing and her basement door forced open.

Police say they found the sleeping intruders after noticing the garage light was on.

Twenty-one-year-old Spencer Peak faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 1 on burglary and other charges. Online court records don't list an attorney for him.

The woman found with Peak hasn't been charged.
