Here's a tip for all you wild teens who get your kicks breaking into people's beach houses to drink wine, try on pajamas, and nap: if you're caught mid-snooze by the resident's owners, make sure you grab your identification on your way out. 19 year-old Chancy Layton left her purse and passport behind Saturday in a mad dash to escape Cheryl Petocz, the St. Augustine beach home owner who returned home from an excursion to find Layton resting on her couch "surrounded by wine bottles."
Police caught up with Layton a block away, who of course had no way to prove she was just innocently walking down the street in someone else's pajamas. Layton was processed at the St. Johns County Jail on charges of burglary, theft, and criminal mischief. She posted her $8,000 bail and was released.
The press has of course dubbed the fair-haired Layton "Goldilocks" for her B&E exploits, but not even the famed fictional ursine residence invader had the audacity to try on Mama Bear's sleepwear or guzzle spirits. This all seems more in line with mid-90s Robert Downey, Jr. Therefore we suggest the media from here on out refer to Chancy Layton as "Downeylocks."
