Vaughn Buckley, 44, of Framingham was arrested after he allegedly broke into a house in Framingham and helped himself to some wine.

A Framingham family got a surprise when they found a strange man passed out in their son’s bedroom Monday evening, according to police.

Framingham police spokeswoman Lieutenant Patricia Grigas said the family made the discovery around 6:11 p.m. and called the police. The burglar apparently used a brick to break a window and enter their basement, she said.

“They find this guy passed out in their son’s room,” Grigas said. “And it looks like he helped himself to some wine in their fridge.”
