FOX News reports that a Louisiana man has claimed that a ghost planted meth that was found in his home after falsely reporting a stabbing. The man was arrested after he claimed to be hit in the head with an ax and drugs were found in his home. He had no visible wounds, and claimed a ghost planted the drugs.
Michael Auttonberry, 59, called deputies and said that a stabbing happened at his home in West Monroe on Wednesday. When the deputies arrived on scene, Auttonberry started shouting at them and people that weren’t there. They also noted he had not been stabbed in the head with an ax, which is what he told dispatchers on the phone.
Auttonberry claimed there were intruders in his home, but the police found none. He also said that a ghost or intruders, who were escaping through a window, planted the crystal meth that was found on his nightstand.
Auttonberry was arrested and charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and filing a false police report. His bond was set at $5,000 and he was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center.
