I Guess If You Have To Commit A Crime …

Terry Trent of Ohio was eager to get a jump on the Christmas season. The 44-year-old, allegedly high out of his mind on bath salts, was arrested for breaking into a Dayton home and putting up Christmas decorations. He was discovered watching television on the couch by the 11-year-old boy who lives there. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I’ll get my things and go,” Trent told the boy, shortly before a neighbor called 911. By “things,” he meant the pocket knife he was armed with. He was charged with burglary and spreading the Christmas spirit. No word on how the tree looked. If only every burglary ended so well. [NY Daily News]
