CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Police are looking for a man they say entered the home of several College of Charleston students, stole several items and cooked himself a can of soup.

Herbert Alonzo Robinson, 46, is wanted by Charleston police for 1st degree burglary.

According to the police report, a man police believe to be Robinson entered on Oct. 14, a St. Philip Street home through the front door that had been left unlocked.

The victims reported they were sleeping at the time the man entered. He stole several DVDs, a bottle of vodka, a pink Dell laptop and a Sony PowerShot digital camera. The victims also found evidence the intruder used the bathroom -- leaving behind a wash cloth covered in feces -- and ate a can of chicken soup he found in the cupboard.

The stolen items were valued at more than $1,200.
