An intoxicated man thought he was doing laundry in his own home, but it took the Abbotsford Police to convince him otherwise on Monday morning.
Const. Ian MacDonald said police received a call from a resident who had heard noises coming from downstairs at about 9 a.m. and discovered a man washing his clothes in her laundry room.
The woman informed him he was in the wrong house, but he insisted he had just moved in.
“There was a bit of a debate about who was wrongly in whose house,” MacDonald said.
Police returned the man to his residence a few houses away. MacDonald said he was new to a neighbourhood where a few of the homes look the same and have the identical interior layout.
