Man Believed To Be On Drugs Mistakes Home For Bed & Breakfast

State Police said a man who appeared to be on drugs allegedly mistook a home for a Bed & Breakfast. The couple living at a home on Foot Hills Road, who said they did not want to be identified, were in their front yard spending time with relatives. One of the relatives went inside the home and said she found a credit card on the stairs.


State Police identified the owner of the credit card as Walker Bruce, 45, of Middletown. Bruce was in the bedroom of the house. Bruce said a taxi dropped him off at the home, which he believed was a Bed & Breakfast, police said. Bruce told State Police he left his credit card on the stairs for payment.


The residents at the home said Bruce was polite, but appeared very disoriented. Police said they suspected Bruce may have been under the influence of drugs. He was arrested, charged with third degree burglary, and taken to Middlesex Clinic, Essex, to be examined.


Police said there was no sign of forced entry, and nothing was taken from the home.
