(CBS/AP)-- First Daniel Bailey ran out of gas. Then he broke into a home in Troy Township.

Next, the Mokena, Ill., man made himself comfortable while the family slept, eating a coffee cake, turning on the TV, playing a round of darts and plugging in the Christmas lights, Will County Sheriff's authorities said, according to CBS Chicago.

They say the 32-year-old Bailey also knocked on a bedroom door and family members found him sitting on the stairs petting their cat.
