australian mag ctA drunk man looking for a warm spot to take a nap on Thursday decided his best bet was the Dandenong Magistrates’ Court.

Dandenong CIU detective Senior Constable Tony Lavars said a man allegedly smashed a window and crept into the courthouse about 3am on April 2, setting the alarms off in the process.

Police arrived shortly afterwards and found the man asleep in one of the meeting rooms.

A 43-year-old Dandenong man was arrested for being drunk.

“We don’t believe his intent was to burgle the premises,” Sen-Constable Lavars said.

“I believe he was heavily alcohol-affected and possibly seeking shelter.”

Sen-Constable Lavars said no charges had been laid but the man had been interviewed in relation to the damage to the premises.
