A Pennsylvanian man allegedly stole a bag of marijuana from a police station because he couldn’t resist the fragrance.

David Allan Thompson, 27, allegedly pilfered pot that had been taken into the Charleroi Regional police department as evidence, the Observer-Reporter reported.

According to a police report, Thompson arrived at the station to inform an officer about an unspecified case. During their conversation, he followed the officer into a patrol room and snatched the bag of weed off the counter, the report said.

When an officer confronted Thompson outside the station, police said he handed over the bag and said, “I just couldn’t help myself. That bud smelled so good.”

The officers also found an marijuana pipe in Thompson’s pocket, police said.

He was arrested on charges of theft, receiving stolen property, tampering with or fabricating evidence, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia, the Observer-Reporter reported.
