TACOMA, Wash., July 2 (UPI) -- What's wrong with a grown man liking stuffed animals? Maybe nothing -- provided they are his.

Washington police officers found a man crammed into a giant box of stuffed animals when they responded to a burglary alarm at a Tacoma thrift store.

According to Pierce County Superior Court documents, officers responded to the St. Vincent De Paul thrift store and found Michael Howell hiding inside a box of stuffed animals in the yard outside the store.

The 29-year-old reportedly told officers that he had smoked meth and then jumped in the box after he got spooked by the burglar alarm.

"I came here for clothes and food, bro," Howell told police, KOMO reported.

Howell was charged with burglary and unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
