Halifax RCMP say a combination of drink, tiredness and hunger led to the arrest of a 20-year-old uninvited man at a home in Timberlea.
Police say just before 3 a.m. Friday morning, a home owner woke up only to find an intoxicated man sleeping on the sofa. They say it appears he entered through an unlocked door, made a snack for himself and then fell asleep on the couch in the living room.
Cpl. Dal Hutchinson said that a cup of tea and jam on a tortilla was made. He also said the incident is a reminder to people about security.
“This stuff can happen and the fact you lock your doors behind you when you get in your house,” Hutchinson said.
A 20-year-old man from Beaverbank, N.S. is facing charges for being unlawfully in a dwelling-house, illegal possession and three counts of breach of probation.
He is set to answer to the charges at Halifax Provincial Court at 10 a.m. on Aug. 1.
