Before leaving the house, he had shared his story with the family. 

According to the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office police report cited by the Albuquerque Journal, the man told the homeowners that his family had been killed in east Texas and he was running away from someone.

The burglar also told them that his car had broken down outside the town. 

The man was arrested by the police after a day following a report of carjacking by a man whose description resembled that of the burglar.

The man reportedly went to a woman at a restaurant’s drive-thru and asked her to get out of the car and wanted to take the car from him. 

The woman started honking at the man and he ran away.

The police later found him walking by a road in the town and took him into custody, where he confessed that he had broken into the house on Sunday to save himself from a blizzard.

He said that he left money for the house owner because he felt bad.

He did not explain the carjacking incident to the authorities. 

The man is currently booked into the Santa Fe County Jail and is facing charges such as aggravated burglary, larceny, aggravated assault and criminal damage to property.
