ENGLEWOOD, Fla. - An Englewood man accused of stealing a bicycle was later found by Walmart employees taking a nap in a bean bag chair, according to deputies.

19-year-old Roy Hornjak has been arrested and charged with Burglary of a Dwelling, Burglary of a Structure, Burglary of a Conveyance, Grand Theft, and Violation of Probation.

According to the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, an Englewood resident reported on Sunday that a bicycle valued at over $300 was stolen from their garage and the suspect had also apparently entered their vehicle to light a marijuana cigarette, based on an odor in the car.

A family member later located the missing bicycle in the bike rack outside the McCall Road Walmart. 

After viewing the video, Wal-Mart personnel located Hornjak asleep on bean bag chairs inside the store. He was asked to leave the store. Instead of leaving, Hornjak went to the Subway located inside Wal-Mart and fell asleep at a table.

When deputies were talking to him at Wal-Mart, Hornjak was found to be in possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

He is being held without bond at the Charlotte County Jail.
