A teenager in Ventura stripped down to his socks, rummaged through his neighbors' cars and tried to hide behind some trash when police came after him early Saturday morning.Ventura police got a call about the naked 15-year-old boy breaking into cars around 2:35 am, according to the Ventura County Star. When police arrived at the scene, the boy tried to hide and then run away.

Police told the Star that the teenager was under a controlled substance, because he was pretty out of it. He had no idea that he had taken all his clothes off, and he didn't even take anything from the unlocked cars he rummaged through.

The teenager was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence, resisting arrest and vehicle tampering.
