Accused burglar laughs all the way to the ER

At 8:26 p.m. Saturday, OPD officers responded to a report of a possible burglary in progress at 116 W. Church St. After hearing uninvited people moving around on the first floor, a female resident had locked herself in a third-floor bedroom and called dispatch.

Responding officers found a male passed out on the first floor. As attempts to wake the unresponsive man were unsuccessful, OPD called the life squad. While paramedics were en route, officers discovered the male possessed a fictitious Maryland driver’s license, a real Illinois license and a Miami University student ID.

Two males, who claimed to be searching for their unconscious friend, were also found on the first floor.

Residents of the house said they did not recognize any of the males and they did not want to press charges, but wanted the males to leave.

While being transported to the hospital, the male awoke and began laughing uncontrollably, according to OPD. Through his laughing spasms, he uttered incoherent speech.

He was brought to McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital and charged with sales to and use by underage persons, certain acts prohibited and disorderly conduct.

Officers discovered a large rock in the basement of the Scholar’s house, which they deduced had been used to break the window. Officers documented the scene and the suspect was charged with criminal mischief, criminal trespassing and sales to and use by underage persons, acccording to OPD.
