This Guy Broke Into A House And Showered, Did Chores, And Wrote An Amazing Diary Entry
"He was trying to be neighbourly."
A man on a cross-country trek received one-year probation after breaking into a home north of Kamloops, British Columbia, and having the time of his life.
"She found the accused in her home watching TV," Crown lawyer Mike Wong said.
Hiscock had also used their toothbrushes, done laundry, fed the livestock, and even written in a diary he found at the house about his new life.
Actual diary entry:
Today was my first full day at the ranch. I fed the cats and horses. So much I can do here I have to remind myself to just relax and take my time.
I don't feel alone here, I guess with 2 cats and 3 horses it's kinda hard to be alone. Last night I had a fire in the house. It was so (peaceful). I slept like a little baby.
I saw a picture in the basement on the wall of a man holding and weighing fish on a boat. Looking at him I realized we look a lot alike, but I think I'm more handsome.
Police arrested Hiscock, and he later pleaded guilty to two charges, including being unlawfully in a dwelling house.
Hiscock had set out from Nova Scotia in early September in hope of finding work in British Columbia. He ran out of money in Ontario and stole a truck in Sault Ste. Marie to make the rest of his journey. He broke into the ranch out of desperation, his lawyer said.
"He was hungry and he needed a roof over his head at the time," Sheldon Tate told BuzzFeed Canada.
Tate said his client knew the house was occupied when he broke in, "which is why he put out hay for the horses, fed the pigs, he did some chores around the house."
