Homeowner Lured Thief Out with Beer

When an intoxicated man broke into a man's home in Bar Harbor, Maine, the homeowner had to bribe the man to leave with (ironically, non-alcoholic) beer!

Scott Cote, 22, remained in jail Monday afternoon after he allegedly broke into a man’s Cleftstone Road home and woke him up around 4 a.m. Monday, police wrote in a report about the incident. The homeowner, after waking up to find Cote in his bedroom, convinced Cote to leave by giving him a nonalcoholic beer, police indicated.

“[The resident] gave suspect a [nonalcoholic] beer to bribe him to leave the residence,” the police report said.

What is this world coming to. I always felt a certain safe security that my parents reside in Maine. It is a good thing my Dad is a level headed man.
