SHELBURNE, Vt. (AP) — Police say a man who thought he was breaking into a Vermont school actually got into the local police station.

WFFF-TV reports (http://bit.ly/XWhVur) the man, identified as 59-year-old John Dettor of Washington, D.C., told police he wanted a warm place to stay.

Police say late last week Dettor used a traffic cone to break the glass to get into the police station in Shelburne, thinking it was a school.

He was arrested on suspicion of unlawful mischief and ended up in the Chittenden Correctional Center. It wasn't immediately known if the man has a lawyer.
