VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. —

A woman called 911 when she said she found a man in his underwear inside her Volusia County home.

"I just woke up. There was a strange man walking in my house," said the woman during the 911 call. "He's walking down the street right now. He's in underwear, ripped."

Investigators said the intruder was 41-year-old Charles Snowden.

The homeowner called 911 after the man left the home on Woodcrest Drive near Ormond Beach.

Detectives said Snowden told them he was looking for tennis balls and had to take off his clothes because they were wet.

Deputies said he appeared to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
