Drunk man breaks into pharmacy, goes to sleep

beer bottles

Most hotels could tell a few embarrassing stories about drunk guests trying to find their bedroom and sleeping in the wrong place – but it’s unusual for a pharmacy.

One pharmacy in Victoria, however, was broken into by a drunk man who had mistaken it for his home.

The ABC reports that Timothy Officer, from Horsham, drank cans of beer all day at an event and then climbed a two-metre fence to access the pharmacy, where he attempted to pull open the locked sliding doors.

When this was unsuccessful, he damaged a glass door to get inside, walked around for a while and then fell asleep in a chair usually reserved for people who are waiting for scripts to be filled.

Officer said he had no memory of the break-in, but pled guilty to criminal damage and trespass.

He was fined $750 and ordered to pay for the repairs to the door.
