Police removed Dulude from the property and told him not to return or else he’d be arrested.

When police performed a sweep of the parking lot around 12:40 a.m., police said they found someone hiding in a chair with a blanket draped over themselves.

Police pulled the blanket off to reveal Dulude hiding underneath it, according to authorities.

“Here at Belfast Police Department, we have seen some crafty ways of hiding from the police,” the department wrote on Facebook. “This unfortunately is not one of them.”

Facebook users poked fun at Dulude’s poor hiding place.

“Wait is this an episode of Scooby-Doo,” one user wrote.
