A Florida man was arrested after he reportedly stole several laxative pills from a person’s house, believing them to be opioids.
The man, Peter Hans Emery, 56, stole the pills from a medicine cabinet at the house he was staying at. He took them from a bottle labelled Hydrocodone-Acetaminophen, believing them to be opioids. However, he reportedly discovered soon after that he had made a mistake.
He was caught on camera stealing the pills, which led to his arrest. He also had a long history of crime, and was booked on a felony charge as well as probation violation charges.
