Police say an Elk Point man was found eating shredded cheese in a family's utility room early Thursday morning.

Public Information Officer Sam Clemens said a 15-year-old girl was sleeping on a couch in the living room of the home in the 4700 block of W. 17th Place when she heard the man come in the open back door around 2:30 a.m.

She ran and locked herself in a room where she called police. Clemens said there were other people in the home at the time of the incident.

Officers found 20-year-old Derick Gregory Neuman in the utility room eating the cheese. Clemens said his PBT was .18.

Neuman was arrested for first degree burglary, resisting arrest and underage consumption.

Clemens said Neuman had walked through the kitchen but did not know if he had brought the cheese with him or not.
