As if losing your keys wasn’t already enough to deal with.
A 22-year-old Westphal man is facing drug charges after police were called to a residence over a possible break and enter after a neighbour saw a person climbing through the front window, then letting three other people in through the front door.
Police were called to the residence on Greely Court Wednesday at 8:20 p.m. and stated ‘police’ after entering the house. That’s when a “strong smell of marijuana was identified by the officers,” a RCMP release said.
Four men, one of whom said they lived in the house, were located in the basement. The 22-year-old said he lost his keys and went through a front window to get in.
A search of the residence found 113 grams of marijuana and a small amount of money.
“I guess you know you’re having a bad day when you lose your keys, you're caught breaking into your own house because somebody thinks it’s a break and enter, and the police show up and all they smell is marijuana,” said RCMP spokesman Cpl. Joe Taplin. “Yeah, I think he was quite surprised.”
The 22-year-old was arrested and will now appear in court at a later date on charges of possession for the purpose.
