HUNTINGTON , W.Va., May 5 (UPI) -- A West Virginia man had a rude awakening on Friday night after allegedly using heroin and passing out in a bank bathroom.

According to the Huntington Police Department, Christopher Anderson woke up in the bathroom of the C&O Credit Union and realized he was locked inside.

The 32-year-old reportedly went into the bank earlier in the day when the business was open and passed out after using heroin in the bathroom on the second floor.

When Anderson woke up in the bank, he called the police to come let him out. He was arrested for misdemeanor possession of a controlled substance and an outstanding warrant.

Gas stations in Huntington have been experiencing similar problems.

"One of my guys came in here because something was real fishy,” Go Mart Manager Kathy Gamblin told WSAZ. “I think he found something and then he pulled one of the tiles down and all this stuff fell onto the floor; syringes, all kinds of dope paraphernalia."
