PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a couple awoke to find a burglar asleep on their bedroom floor.

The Washington County Sheriff's Office says the couple escorted the man out Wednesday morning before realizing that wallets, cell phones and a tablet computer were missing. Deputies, aided by the Find My iPhone app, found a 64-year-old suspect hiding under the porch of a nearby home.

Ervin Solomon has been charged with burglary, theft and felon in possession of a restricted weapon.

In addition to the items taken from the couple, the sheriff's office says Solomon had jewelry and other items. Deputies are trying to find the owners of that property.
