ST. CLOUD -- A man is charged with felony burglary after allegedly breaking into a St. Cloud home and raiding the kitchen pantry.

According to the charging complaint, a man called police early Thursday to report a burglary. He said his wife woke him up shortly before 5:30 a.m. to alert him to a door slamming. The man said he went to the kitchen where he found a shirtless man.
