Along with the suspect stealing some of their belongings, the Bakers also caught him spitting on their floors before stripping down and taking a shower with their garden hose.

“He just walked on back and opened the door and turned on the spigot and was showering down,” said Tommi. “And I’m looking at my husband like, ‘What is this guy doing?'”
