COLUMBIA, Pa. (AP) — Police say a burglary suspect made himself at home before a central Pennsylvania family returned from a trip to find him settled into their residence.

Police say 21-year-old Zachary Jock was arrested Sunday after a family returned to find him wearing their clothes, eating their food, and even rearranging their furniture.

Columbia police believe Jock had settled in for at least two days and damaged the home by throwing two knives, which stuck into the ceiling. Police also found pills, alcohol and cigarettes in the home that didn't belong to the owner. Police say Jock also had $2,800 worth of items in a backpack that belonged to the home's owner and his child.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Jock, who remains in the Lancaster County jail.
