It’s not unheard of to find a drunk individual passed out on a lawn, but a roof is another thing all together. But that is what Turlock Police officers found early Monday morning atop a Turlock home.

Shortly before 5 a.m. Monday residents from the 700 block of Silver Creek Court contacted the police department after being awoken by strange noises that they described as sounding like someone walking on their roof.

The arriving officers didn’t find a man walking on the residence. Instead they found a man dozing on the rooftop.

The man was identified as Angelo Gomez, 18, of Turlock.

It’s unknown how Gomez got onto the rooftop. No ladder was found in the vicinity.

Gomez had no known connection to the house or the homeowners. Police suspect he believed he was actually on a rooftop of a home one street away.

Gomez was arrested for public intoxication.
