Kelso couple finds strange man sleeping in their home

KELSO, WA (KPTV) -

An elderly couple is still shaken after they say they found a strange man lying on the floor of their house.

Joan and Rod Wright, both in their 80s, say they were asleep in the early hours of March 30 when Joan heard her cat running around. She says she got up to investigate and found a man lying on the floor in the couple's guest bedroom. Even stranger, he was wearing her husband's clothes. The Wrights say they confronted the man, and he ran away. They called the police.

Neighbor Ron Spahman told Fox 12 that the bizarre incident shocked the couple.

"Luckily, Kelso PD did a great job and caught the guy," said Spahman, "but they just couldn't believe he'd been in the home."

According to court documents, the suspect, Sean Grendon, 37, told police that he was following drones through the forest when his clothes got wet in the rain. Grendon said he went inside the Wrights' house, put on dry clothes, and grabbed a beer out of their refrigerator. He faces one charge of residential burglary.
