Folks, we may have found the genius criminal to end all genius criminals, and as a bonus this one has Spock ears.

A man broke into a residence in the 2011 block of West Civic Center in Santa Ana on July 22, removed all of his clothing and went to sleep in a bed already occupied by a female resident.

She woke up, noticed the nude stranger sleeping next to her and screamed--so loudly that the man awoke, jumped out a window and ran off.

That might have been the end of it if it weren't for this: He left behind his pants.

And in those pants were pockets.

And in those pockets were a cell phone and a wallet.

And in that wallet was a California drivers license.

Here's the weird part ... OK, that's bullshit, you just read the weird part. Here's the, uh, unusual part? The fellow pictured on the drivers license was not interviewed by Santa Ana police detectives until 10 a.m. this past Friday. What, was there a bankers, investigators and burglars holiday in between?

During that interview, Jonathan Phan, 29, and his Spock ears were arrested on suspicion of residential burglary.

Josh Nguyen just because he has the same name doesn't mean he's my son! Stupid article, if the guy was any other ethnicity it would scream discrimination all over it comments about his ears were unnecessary. The guy was probably drunk and thought he was in his own bed. Doesn't he have to steal something to consider burglary?

He was probably high on drugs or on a bad trip and was clearly confused.  Probably was too dazed to realize he went to the wrong residence to pass out.  Don't think it warrants a burgary charge or being made fun of for his appearance.  However, if he woke up next to me I would be extremely scared.  Tough call on this one.  I don't think he had criminal intent.  A nice apology to the victim and some community service maybe?

I think his "Spock Ears" are just awesome...but his crime was illogical (and creepy).

It sounds very discriminating of the author to make fun of someone's look. Of course, you can say He is a criminal. He deserves it. I think it rather shows the author's heart through action in words. It would be nice to leave the mean "spock ears" part out, Mr Bully.

So what's the deal with his ears? He's not a bad guy. People are just looking for reasons to make fun of others.

Were the comments about his ears necessary? There's more than enough story without them.

He's an idiot, but I imagine he'll get off on a charge of burglary. He clearly didn't attempt to steal anything or commit a crime. In fact, he left his belongings. Skeevy, yes, but - and correct me if I'm wrong lawyers and law students - this is more of a breaking and entering and/or lewd conduct/indecent exposure crime; a charge of burglary will probably end up dismissed. Spock ears and all.

@949girl 

Yeah, I think it's unfair that he's being popped for residential burglary...he left that house with LESS than he went in with!

@whitetrash Perhaps you can help me with this. I do not recall EVER hearing the surname PHAN being associated with the Hispanic community, so why would you suggest he be returned to Mexico?
