And he would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren’t for Maine’s Belfast Police Department.
Officers responded around 9:30 p.m. Sunday to the Admiral Ocean Inn in Belfast for a report of a disturbance caused by a drunken man identified as Philip Dulude, the Belfast Police Department said.
Police removed Dulude from the property and told him not to return or else he’d be arrested.
When police performed a sweep of the parking lot around 12:40 a.m., police said they found someone hiding in a chair with a blanket draped over themselves.
Police pulled the blanket off to reveal Dulude hiding underneath it, according to authorities.
"Here at Belfast Police Department, we have seen some crafty ways of hiding from the police," the department wrote on Facebook. "This unfortunately is not one of them."
Facebook users poked fun at Dulude’s poor hiding place.
"Wait is this an episode of Scooby-Doo," one user wrote.
Another replied: "He almost got away with it!"
Dulude was arrested for criminal trespass and violation of bail conditions.
