BROCKVILLE – A Brockville store gained an employee over the weekend…and not by choice.

City police say other staff at the north end hardware store found a drunk man camping out in their “outdoor lunch break shed” on the property yesterday (Sunday).

It turned out the 68-year-old man had been taking refuge for “several hours,” according to police.

The man was arrested and given a ticket for being intoxicated in a public place. He was released once he sobered up.
