SCRANTON, Pa. -

A man was drunk when he walked into a strange home early Thursday and fixed himself a late-night dinner and a nightcap as the home's occupants slept soundly on the living room couch, police said.

Steven Johnson cooked a steak on the stove and helped himself to some clams, crab, and shrimp from the refrigerator, authorities said. The man on the sofa woke up and called police after watching Johnson, 24, head out the door.

Officers arrested Johnson nearby, the Scranton Times-Tribune reported. He had made off with some of the leftovers, a box of Klondike bars, and bottles of rum and vodka, authorities said.

Johnson faces charges of burglary, criminal trespass, and public drunkenness.
