Drunk man seeks police assistance
Ponoka RCMP responded to a man banging on the door at the detachment Dec. 21 at 6:30 a.m. He was taken in by police as he had no jacket and no shoes. A short time later police received a call from a woman who said a drunken man entered her home, thinking it was a friend’s, and tried to sleep on the couch but could not because she was sleeping there.
She asked the man to leave and he accidentally left with one of his shoes and one of hers. The shoes were recovered in the alley and police believe the incidents are related as the description given by the homeowner matches that of the man at their door.
