Brandywine, Delaware (The Weekly Vice) - John Finch, a 44-year-old Delaware man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly burglarized a home - but then called 911 to ask officers to help him get out.
According to New Castle County police, officers and firefighters were dispatched to the home when Finch called 911 asking for help.
When officers arrived, they communicated with Finch through an open window at the back of the house - the same window he had used to break into the home.
Investigators say Finch had been trapped inside the home for several days. During his stay, he had reportedly consumed several bottles of Seagrams gin and two bottles of whiskey - complements of the home owner's alcohol stash.
Finch had become so drunk, he was apparently unable to navigate his way back out of the window he had entered.
A quick background check revealed that he had a warrant for his arrest stemming from a burglary of the SAME home back in April. He was also wanted on a felony theft charge.
Finch was booked into jail on two counts of second-degree burglary and felony theft. Bail information was not immediately available.
