The homeowner reportedly told police he was sleeping when he woke to see Onaga standing in his hallway. Police say Onaga fled with unspecified property when confronted.
That property was allegedly found on Onaga when he was apprehended, and he was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of felony burglary and possession of stolen property.
He remained in custody in lieu of $50,000 bail Thursday morning.
