BROOKSIDE, Ala. (AP) — A suspect found a creative place to hide during an Alabama drug raid, but investigators say it was the snoring that did him in.

Brookside police said in a news release that about one hour and 45 minutes in to searching a house, investigators heard a snoring sound coming from the clothes dryer and found Michael Christopher Davis curled up inside the appliance.

The 33-year-old suspect told police they had spent so much time searching the home Wednesday afternoon that he fell asleep.

Brookside police Chief Jason Springfield says Davis' arrest came after multiple people inside and outside the home attempted to run away from authorities who had arrived to search the house.

It's unclear what charges Davis is facing.
