West Monroe Man Tells Cops ‘Ghost Planted Meth In My House’
A Ouachita Parish man told police that a it was a ghost who planted drugs on him - and hit him in the head with an ax - following his arrest in West Monroe last week.
"Michael Auttonberry, 59, reported to sheriff's deputies on Wednesday that there had been a stabbing at his home in West Monroe, according to arrest records from the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office.
"Auttonberry told deputies that intruders were in his home — police determined that this wasn't the case. He allegedly told authorities that the suspected crystal meth deputies claim to have found on his nightstand was planted by a "ghost or intruders" who happened to be climbing out a nearby window — which police also determined to be false.
Auttonberry was charged with possession of a controlled dangerous substance and giving a false police report. He was booked at the Ouachita Correctional Center on a $5,000 bond."
