SEBRING — When Sebring Police responded to a grocery store alarm, they encountered a man who said he wanted to buy milk, according to an arrest report released Tuesday.

Instead, he ended up being arrested on drug-related charges, according to the report.

Sherwin Murray Wyche, 35, 155 Josephine Ave., Lake Placid, was arrested by the Sebring Police Department and charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.

Police arrested Wyche after responding to a burglary alarm at a grocery store. The arrest report said that Wyche had kicked and banged the locked door of the closed grocery store. That set off the alarm.

Wyche told police that he wanted to buy milk. But, the report said, police suspected he was intoxicated after he began talking incoherently.

Police found that Wyche possessed five baggies containing methamphetamine, the report said.
