Danish police say a man who was carrying 1,000 marijuana joints accidentally got into a police car thinking it was a taxi.

According to the BBC, the alleged drug dealer caught the police car in Copenhagen while rushing home. The full statement from police read:

"Last night a cannabis dealer from Christiania who wanted to get home quickly got into a taxi. He received a big surprise when he realized it was actually a police car he was sitting in. The police officers were happy to see him, since he was carrying around 1,000 joints."

Because cannabis is illegal in Denmark, the man will face charges.
