An off-duty RCMP officer was arrested for allegedly breaking into a River Heights home while intoxicated on Thursday, said Winnipeg police.
An investigation determined that a suspect in an intoxicated state broke in through the front door to a stranger's residence in River Heights and woke up a person inside, said officers.
A neighbour told CTV News the suspect fell asleep on a couch inside the home.
The neighbour said the suspect believed he was at a hotel and even left his shoes at the door before falling asleep on the couch.
Winnipeg police responded and took the suspect into custody.
The 30-year-old male suspect faces a charge for forcible entry and has been released on a court appearance notice. His name has not been released.
