A California man living in a “well-disguised” treehouse is accused of stealing things from a nearby house and garage last month.
According to the Pomona Police Department, 56-year-old Mark Duda was living in what authorities described as a “well-built and modern treehouse” when he was arrested on suspicion of burglary.
“The treehouse contained many essentials, such as a fire pit, barbecue, and lighting,” police said.
The treehouse also came with a picturesque view featuring the San Gabriel Mountains and the National Hot Rod Assn.’s museum, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Police said Duda broke into a home in Ganesha Hills and stole several items back in April.
The victim was able to catch a glimpse of Duda as he was leaving with the stolen property and later identified him, leading to his arrest.
Duda is being held on $50,000 bail pending a court hearing, according to KTLA.
