Talk about an easy collar! John Dettor literally walked into a charge, or broke into one anyway.
The 59-year-old told cops he wanted somewhere warm to stay and so he smashed a window to try and get in to what he thought was a school.
Turns out it was the police station in Shelburne, Vt. and his noisy break and enter soon alerted a dispatcher inside.
A patrol officer found him hiding in the bushes outside and Dettor was quickly charged with unlawful mischief.
Dettor has now taken a detour to the Chittenden Correctional Facility.
At least he'll be warm there.
