CHARLEROI, Pa. (AP) — A western Pennsylvania man is accused of stealing a small bag of marijuana held as evidence because he allegedly couldn't resist the drug's aroma.
Authorities say that 27-year-old David Allan Thompson of Charleroi stopped at a police station Saturday night to offer police some unspecified information.
Police tell the Observer-Reporter newspaper that Thompson apparently stole the drugs while an officer was logging them into evidence after police had seized them that night.
Police confronted Thompson outside the station. They say handed over the drugs and confessed, saying, "I just couldn't help myself. That bud smelled so good."
Thompson faces a preliminary hearing Aug. 23. Online court records list no attorney for him.
