ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Anchorage police say a vandal caused up to $30,000 in damage to a fitness club - and then was found pretending to be asleep inside.

KTUU-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1ir9sbc ) that police responded Sunday morning to a call at the Northern Lights Body Renew Fitness Club. They found office equipment was destroyed on the ground and a water fountain torn off the wall.

Officers searched the building and said they found 29-year-old Deepak Chaudhary pretending to be asleep between two exercise mats. Investigators say Chaudhary used a member’s key card to get into the building but inadvertently destroyed the electronic door mechanism, locking himself inside. Police said the man didn’t notice the emergency exits and remained locked inside until police arrived.

Chaudhary faces charges of first-degree burglary and second-degree criminal mischief.
