AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Police have arrested a 28-year-old man who they say broke into an Austin business, stole a couple of sausages and fell asleep.

KXAN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1wbeW0B ) that surveillance video from Hudson Meats shows the man trying to break down the front door for about 20 minutes.

The intruder then takes some sausages from the meat-processing business, goes back outside and then returns, grabbing a coat and falling asleep in the back office.

Austin police officers woke up Ricardo Cardona, who told police he'd been out drinking, and charged him with criminal trespassing. It wasn't immediately clear whether Cardona has an attorney.

The store owner says insurance money paid for a replacement door.
