Police: Burglar found in Md. home cooking pot pie

SALISBURY, Md. — Authorities say a man broke into a Salisbury home, stripped down to his underwear and cooked a chicken pot pie.

It happened about 10:25 p.m. Wednesday when the homeowner heard someone banging on his door. The homeowner called 911 and then hid upstairs.

Police say 22-year-old Russell E. Neff broke into the home and took off most of his clothes. Officers say they found him sitting in a living room chair, using the TV remote control.

Officers tell The Daily Times of Salisbury that Neff was also baking a pot pie he found in the kitchen.

Neff has been charged with burglary and other offenses.
