A Florida man named Daniel Albert Neja is charged with felony burglary for allegedly living in a stadium’s luxury suite.
Authorities say he was there for two weeks!
Police say the 39-year-old man moved into Al Lang Stadium where the Tampa Bay Rowdies soccer team plays.
A spokesperson with the St. Petersburg Police Department says Neja made himself quite a home there.
Neja stole $1,000 worth of merchandise from the team store and was wearing the clothes when he was arrested.
He also stole $200 worth of food.
Neja was also charged with a misdemeanor for resisting an officer without violence.
His bond is currently set at $5,150.
Authorities say something as unusual as this would not have happened under normal circumstances.
Because of Covid 19 the stadium was completely empty.
Under normal circumstances the stadium would have been full of people and the luxury suites would have been in use and cleaned regularly.
