WINNIPEG — It wasn’t officially a cold case, but police officers looking for a man who had breached a number of court orders found him hiding in a refrigerator.
Court heard that Terrence Hanska was recently arrested in a west Winnipeg apartment building after another man told an officer to go look in the icebox.
When the officer discovered Hanska and asked him what he was doing there, he replied he was “chillin.”
“He’s lucky he didn’t suffocate,” said Judge Mary Kate Harvie. “That stunt of hiding in the fridge concerns me because it shows that you are not thinking at all.”
The judge ruled Hanska, 19, had cooled his heels in custody long enough and sentenced him to 55 days time served.
Hanska’s sentence included an earlier conviction for assaulting his former girlfriend during an argument over rent money.
