Intruder dies after taking owner’s pills

`An intruder has been found dead and naked in the house he broke into after apparently overdosing on prescription drugs he had found inside.

The 60-year-old resident of an Adelaide property found the body yesterday after being away for two days.

Police said the dead man appeared to have taken the resident’s diabetes tablets, vomited in the toilet and then used the shower before collapsing.

Detective Senior Sergeant Brian Kimber, of Elizabeth, said the intruder, aged in his 20s, had been known to police.’
