Man living in 'modern treehouse' arrested on suspicion of burglary, cops say

Can someone accused of a crime be placed under "treehouse" arrest? California cops may soon find out.

A man living in a “well-disguised” California treehouse -- built so solidly even cops complimented it -- is accused of stealing several items from a nearby house and garage last month, police said Thursday.

Mark Robert Duda, 56, of Pomona, was living in what officials described as a “well-built and modern treehouse” when police arrested him on suspicion of burglary. Police said Duda broke into a Ganesha Hills home and stole multiple items April 18.

The home's actual residents said they got a quick glance at the burglar and told police the man looked familiar, according to KTLA. A police helicopter and a K-9 were used to track the man down.

“The treehouse contained many essentials, such as a fire pit, barbecue, and lighting,” police said.

The treehouse also came with a picturesque view featuring the San Gabriel Mountains and the National Hot Rod Assn.’s museum, according to the Los Angeles Times.
