Columbia police arrest naked burglary suspect

Columbia police have apparently caught a buck-naked burglar.

Victor Mendoza, 35, was booked into Boone County Jail on Monday morning. He’s facing charges for burglary, sexual misconduct, and drugs.

Investigators say the stripped-down suspect went into homes through unlocked doors on the east side of town south of the Lake of the Woods exit of I-70 on Canaveral and Neptune drives early Saturday. Residents woke up to find a man in their bedrooms. He left as soon as they confronted him. He apparently did not take anything or hurt anyone.
