A man was found in a store bathroom passed out on a toilet after huffing compressed air.

Lancaster Police were called to a Transit Road retail store overnight over reports a man was in a bathroom huffing. When officers arrived, they found the 37-year-old Niagara Falls man passed out on a toilet with a can of compressed air pressed against his mouth.

Officers say they found two bottles of compressed air in the men’s room and four bottles in the women’s room that the man had huffed.

The man was taken to ECMC. He’s facing charges for inhaling the cans and may face charges for third degree burglary and petit larceny.
