A man in Rhode Island has been arrested after he allegedly admitted to breaking into homes to steal sex toys he intended to give out as birthday gifts, according to authorities.

Around 10:45 p.m. on June 2, officers were dispatched to a home on Power Street in Providence after a man called to report seeing a suspect outside his house attempting to get in through the bathroom window, WPRI-TV reported.

The man confronted the suspect, who then drove away in a white Kia, officials said. The resident reportedly saw the same vehicle later that night on a nearby street.

Police went to that location and reportedly caught 32-year-old Benjamin Nadrowski sifting through a dumpster with a flashlight. Officers asked him about the earlier incident on Power Street and he claimed he was “attempting to buy weed” but accidentally went to the wrong house, WPRI-TV reported.

Nadrowski was arrested and officers asked him about three other breaking-and-entering incidents that recently took place.

Officials said Nadrowski told police he went into a home on May 27 and stole a sex toy from someone’s bedroom. He then reportedly confessed to taking two other sex toys from another residence. Then he tried to take a makeup palette from another home, but was caught by the resident and dropped it, WPRI-TV stated.

When talking with police, Nadrowski said he only took the sex toys because he wanted to give them as a birthday present, authorities said.
