A teenage homeowner was shocked to find a clown sleeping in his bed, according to police in Vermont.

Marlboro police said that they have arrested 43-year-old Sean J. Barber after being accused of breaking into a home while in possession of cocaine.

Barber has been charged with one count each of unlawful trespass and possession of cocaine.

He was booked into the Southern State Correctional Facility, and he was released without bail.

According to the police investigation, on Sunday, at around 3:30 a.m., the Vermont State Police responded to a 911 call from a teenager on Higley Hill Road.

The teen reported that an unknown man dressed like a clown was sleeping in his bed.

Police located Barber, who was intoxicated and sleeping in an upstairs bedroom inside the occupied residence.
