A Minnesota man was arrested for burglary after his truck got stuck in a massive pile a manure when he tried to get leave the scene of the crime. The owner of a farm called the police to report that somebody had broken into one of his sheds and stolen lumber and various tools. He told them that the culprit's vehicle was still on the property stuck in a wet pile of manure.
When officers arrived on the scene they found 29-year-old Matthew Bloomquist standing next to his truck, covered from the waist down in manure. Bloomquist told police that he did not know the lumber was stolen and that he was just helping a friend, who claimed to have paid for it. He explained that he had spent hours overnight working with his friend to free the truck.
In a police report detailing the incident, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office joked that "this encounter was accompanied by a strong smelling odor," adding that the officer "doesn’t have enough Febreeze to combat the aroma" that has taken over his squad car.
Bloomquist was hosed off before he was taking to booking where he was charged with 3rd Degree Burglary and Possession of Stolen Property.
