Deputy Sheriff Seth Hopp of Monroe County, Florida found a car with all 4 doors open, but no one inside. When he approached, the heard knocking coming from inside the trunk. He ordered whoever was inside to come out. "I can't!" replied a voice from inside the trunk. The Sun Sentinel reports:

"I opened the trunk and a...male emerged," said Hopp. And the male had an unusual explanation for his predicament.

After going for a walk on the beach, Moore told the deputy, "he was looking for the keys to the vehicle and had accidently fallen in the trunk while searching for the keys. The trunk then closed on top of him."

What happened to Moore's keys remains unknown. The deputy may have opened the trunk using an in-car release, said Monroe County Sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin.

Surprisingly, drugs were involved:

During his interview with Hopp, Moore told the deputy he had in the car a pill bottle containing marijuana.
