A two-hour standoff ended with a home intruder in custody -- completely naked, authorities in West Whiteland Township said.

Officers responding to a house for an alarm activation around 4:30 a.m. Monday found a broken window and heard someone upstairs, Det. Scot Pezick said.

The officers left the house and established a perimeter, bringing the county SWAT team to the scene.

Around 6:15 a.m., 36-year-old Bryan R. Smith, of Exton, walked out of the house stark naked, authorities said.

Smith was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief and theft by unlawful taking.
