Police arrested 53-year-old Michael E. Krznar in the 300 block of North Hays Street after finding him naked in the back room of a home at around 11:13 a.m., Saturday, October 12 in Bloomington, according to Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Ben Burns.
Burns said Krznar had entered a home in the 1500 block of W. 8th Street, and asked a resident for water, and was told to leave. The man left, and the resident witnessed him trying to open the doors of several other houses before entering the home where he was arrested. He did not force entry.
When officers checked the home there was no answer, and as they cleared the residence they found clothes, and then found Krznar naked in the back room, a home office, and took him into custody without incident.
Krznar is being charged with two counts of residential entry.
