A Nebraska man was arrested after he allegedly did thousands of dollars in damage to the inside of a market and some of the cars in the parking lot when he could not find his drug smoking paraphernalia.
On the evening of November 24, 40-year-old Andrew Marr reportedly paid a visit to the Super Saver grocery store.
While inside the market, Marr allegedly became distressed when he thought he lost the pipe he reportedly uses to smoke drugs.
The man reportedly started to destroy items in the store and allegedly believed one of the other shoppers had taken his property.
When Marr walked out of the establishment, he allegedly got his hands on a parking sign and swung it at vehicles parked in the lot at the Super Saver.
The Lancaster County Police Department was notified about the incident, and when the police pulled into the parking lot, they reported that a man identified as Marr was swinging the sign at the parked vehicles.
The officers approached and spoke with Marr, who was cooperative during their interaction, and asked him what was going on.
Marr allegedly disclosed that he became angry when he thought someone had stolen his pipe.
The police patted Marr down while detaining him for the alleged outburst, and it was reported that they discovered a pipe on his person that they believed was the object he was seeking.
Marr was taken into custody and booked into the Lancaster County Jail on a $5,000 bond. He is facing charges for suspicion of criminal mischief, and possession of a controlled substance.
A computer, a metal detector, and many bottles of wine were reportedly destroyed during Marr’s outburst, and the approximate cost of the damage to the store and vehicles was assessed at $7,000.
