When Monroe County Sheriff's deputies responded to an alarm at an appliance shop in Marathon late last night, they expected to find the usual: a burglary in progress or perhaps a malfunctioning security system. Instead, the cops say they walked in through an unlocked side door to find Kenneth White, a 19-year-old Marathoner, hastily pulling up his pants in front of a computer playing porn. It's OK, though -- he was just there "looking for a job."

Two deputies headed to Marathon's Windswept Appliance and Air Conditioning shop just before 11:30 last night after an alarm was triggered, according to the Sheriff's Office.

They noticed a broken window out front and a pair of shoes lying outside before entering through the unlocked door.

After White put his pants back on, he first told the deputies he was at the store job hunting, the deputies say. Then, he told them he'd seen a light on inside the store and was "investigating."

Now he faces a felony burglary charge and two misdemeanors. "Watching porn on someone else's computer" isn't a chargeable offense just yet, so the law went with two counts of petit theft and property damage.
