A family from California were very surprised this week to return home from the carwash and find a stranger hidden in the boot of their car.
Sal Landeros, the owner of the vehicle, pulled up to his house in San Bernardino County along with his son Chris, and brother Eddie, to find that a stranger had hidden in the back of his vehicle.
Sal heard a knocking coming from the boot. The three men approached the noise and opened the boot slightly, only to find a pair of eyes staring back at them. Immediately they slammed it shut.
Rather than taking matters into their own hands or letting the man out straight away, they called the police. Chris Landeros filmed the following situation on his phone.
The law enforcers arrived and surrounded the car, tasers and guns at the ready. They then sheepishly opened the boot and pointed their weapons. Obviously slightly stunned by the light and ruckus, the stranger stares at the officers before climbing out of the boot.
The unidentified man was then handcuffed and taken into custody where it is still unclear why the man snuck into the Landeros’ boot, and it is unknown what charges he may face.
Sal explained to the press that he was scared to hear the noise and discover that a person had hidden in his car for around 10 minutes. Sal said that the stranger was apologising and that he may of been hiding from someone.
“He was saying sorry a lot and he was running away from someone that needed his money, because he didn’t pay up or something. He must have got in while they were washing it. He just closed the trunk on himself.”
