Southeast Iowa "Goldilocks" arrested for burglary

    Jonathan Diaz, 32, of Birmingham/Jefferson County Jail

    A Birmingham, Iowa, man is in jail after being arrested for burglary in a case that bears a striking resemblance to the fairy tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

    Jonathan Diaz, 32, was arrested in Fairfield early Monday morning at a residence on south Third Street.

    The owners of the residence found Diaz in the home asleep in a chair. They didn’t know who he was nor were they able to wake him up.

    One of the homeowners noticed that Diaz was wearing his ring.

    Police discovered stolen property and marijuana on Diaz’s person.

    Unfortunately, court records don't indicate if Diaz helped himself to some porridge.

    If convicted on the burglary charge, Diaz could face up to ten years in prison. Next up in the case, a Dec. 21 preliminary hearing.
