A man who police say sneaked into a central New Jersey home and successfully hid under a bed for three days before he was discovered was the ex-boyfriend of the homeowners’ daughter.

Spotswood police announced that Jason Hubbard was charged with burglary in the incident, which occurred in May. He also was charged with theft of services because he allegedly charged his four cellphones in an electrical outlet under the bed.

Margaret Adamcewicz told WABC-TV that Hubbard was hiding upstairs underneath the bed in her daughter’s bedroom. She said the two had dated five years ago.

“It didn’t end well,” Ms. Adamcewicz said. “He didn’t say why he came back. He just picked our house to hide out in. He didn’t have a home to live in.

“I haven’t heard from him in five years,” Adamcewicz said. “I wasn’t scared, I was just angry.”

Hubbard entered the home May 7, sneaking in while the homeowner took out the garbage, authorities said. Hubbard remained jailed on $50,000 bail.
