Georgia man told State College police he was on acid last month when he broke into a Korean restaurant, cooked himself a meal, offered himself a refund of $ 3,000 , then stole a car that later ended up in a serious accident in Erie County. the authorities said.
Bailey Alger, 22, was first arrested on August 5 in Millcreek Township when police found a stolen 2016 Infinity Q70L that had been involved in an accident.
Algiers told police he took acid and “a bunch of other drugs,” according to a probable cause affidavit obtained by The Times Daily Center. He is charged in Erie County with receiving stolen goods, impaired driving and two traffic summaries.
Investigators traced the Infiniti to State College, where it was allegedly stolen outside Korean Table, a restaurant in the 300 block of South Allen Street.
The restaurant owner reportedly returned home after a vacation in early August and discovered that the front door to his establishment had been left open. Inside, he found that his food and wares had been rearranged in the kitchen.
When questioned by Millcreek police, Algiers admitted he broke into a Korean table while high and cooking himself. He was reimbursed by logging into the registry as an employee, police said. Algiers spent the night at the restaurant and left in the morning with the Infiniti parked outside.
Algiers is also charged with burglary, criminal intrusion, theft and related offenses. He is being held at the Center County Correctional Facility after being unable to post $ 25,000 bail. An arraignment is scheduled for September 23.
