At about 10:20 a.m., a man entered the house in the 2800 block of Park Street. The woman was upstairs at the time, and she heard noise, police said.

The woman confronted the suspect, who ran out the door and through a wood fence.

As the suspect fled, the woman called police, and officers headed toward her house. While en route, an officer noticed a man running away from the area on the railroad tracks.

Officers managed to catch the man, who matched the description of the suspect.

The victim confirmed to police that the man they caught was the person who entered her house. Police identified the suspect as 35-year-old Joseph Godrey of Atascadero.

Officers arrested Godfrey for first-degree residential burglary and possession of drugs and booked him into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Godfrey remains in custody with his bail set at $50,000.

really scary. Tis why we have the 2nd amendment tbh

It looks like he has Penguins on his clothes. . .Has he been watching too many old reruns of Batman ??. His cellies must think that’s pretty special.. isn’t that special

Never make fun of another man’s jammies…

He’s lucky that he chose an unarmed home owner’s abode

Nice big forehead at which to aim….

Not her man Godfrey.

And from recent stories we learn if this person had been a city employee he would have been given a handshake and likely a ride home.
