BATON ROUGE - A Baton Rouge man accused of breaking into a house late Monday and threatening to shoot two sleeping residents while stealing various items from their home, is now under arrest.

Deputies say Cosme Continii, 29, entered the Parkforest Drive home through a broken kitchen door window around 2:30 a.m. and entered the couple's bedroom while they were asleep.

A victim told authorities the intruder told him not to move or the intruder would shoot.

The victim also told authorities he did not call them because he was scared the man would come back to harm his family.

Sheriff's deputies, however, discovered the items stolen in the burglary a couple of hours later when they responded to a vehicle crash on Mickens Road near Joor Road.

Continii admitted to stealing the items from a vehicle that was tracked to the victims.

Continii was booked on one count each of home invasion, burglary of an inhabited dwelling, theft and criminal damage to property.
