A 20-year-old man is accused of breaking into an abandoned house and falling asleep on the couch, where deputies found him.
Okaloosa County Sheriff’s deputies were investigating a call about reported suicide threats around 10 p.m. on April 13, according to the arrest reports. They found that a 16-year-old had left the residence they were called to in the company of Michael James Brown, of Crestview.
Deputies were reportedly told the two might be at an abandoned home.
When they arrived, they found Brown and then teen in the abandoned home, asleep on the couch, the report said. Marijuana and a bong were in plain view near the two.
The homeowner told deputies no one was supposed to be in the home and said he’d told Brown he couldn’t enter the house earlier that day, according to the report. Additional paraphernalia was found in Brown’s vehicle.
Brown is charged with burglary, possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
