When a Lethbridge homeowner heard noises coming from his garage, the last thing he expected to find was someone hanging from the rafters.

On Oct. 4 Kesley David Wolfchild entered a garage in the 2500 block of 26 Street south by walking through the unlocked door. When the homeowner heard noises and went to investigate, Wolfchild was hanging from the rafters.

When police arrived Wolfchild was still hanging from the rafters. He hadn’t caused any damage, and he hadn’t stolen anything. However, he was caught with a meth pipe and a partially empty bottle of vodka.

Wolfchild pleaded guilty Tuesday in Lethbridge provincial court to one count each of housebreaking and failing to comply with previous release conditions. He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, but given enhanced credit for the time he had spent in custody since his arrest, leaving six days on his sentence.

6 days with a warm bed and meals, for an unlawful entry. Some deterrent. Should be 5 years.
