Snorting bath salts puts Ohio burglar in holiday spirit

Terry Trent / Vandalia Police Dept.

Central Ohio police say an accused burglar got into the Christmas spirit a few months early.

Investigators in Vandalia says 44 year old Terry Trent got high on the synthetic drug called "bath salts" and then broke into a home last month.

They say Trent lit some candles and put up christmas decorations before plopping down on the couch to watch some television.

An 11 year old boy returning home from a football game found Trent and called 911.

Trent told police he didn't mean to scare the boy. He was arrested without incident.
