A woman keeping an eye on her friend's home while the owners are out of town found a strange man inside.

Police arrested 35–year–old Isaiah Martinez Tuesday morning just before six o'clock for burglary.  They say the housesitter arrived at the home and found an unknown car in the driveway. Police say she saw lights on inside the house and a broken window.

"Initially he claimed to officers that he knew the people who lived there however we were able to contact them and they confirmed that they did not know Isaiah nor had they given permission for him to be inside their home," Officer Katie Flood said.

Police say officers found two pairs of women's underwear from the house in the lining of Martinez's coat. He was taken into police custody.
