A Washington state man was high on LSD when he allegedly went on a week-long home invasion and robbery spree in the town of Roy.

George Jacobson, 23, is charged with robbery, kidnapping, burglary and theft of a firearm, KCPQ reported. He allegedly broke into homes on Sept. 26 stealing weapons and demanding a ride to McDonald’s. According to police, he said he was high on acid the whole time and making bizarre demands of his victims.

A homeowner told police he walked into his barn to find Jacobson holding a single black rubber boot.

When he asked what he was doing in the barn, Jacobson allegedly went outside, bent down and put his hands in the air.

The homeowner threatened to “sic his dogs” on him and that’s when Jacobson ran away, police said.

He allegedly went to a neighboring home where a female homeowner claims Jacobson drew a gun. She says he wasn’t making sense and kept repeating the words “mean neighbor.”

She asked him what he wanted and he allegedly demanded a sandwich. She made him one and while he ate he allegedly showed her the black boot. He reportedly told her the “boot contained his jewels” and that he was on a “spiritual journey.”

When her husband arrived home they managed to persuade Jacobson to leave and dropped him off at the end of their driveway. The couple later found that a handgun had been stolen from their home.

Police searched for the suspect, but he wasn’t heard from again until the morning of Oct. 3. He was reportedly spotted going through a car at a conference center. He left items, including knives, in the vehicle.

A short time later he was discovered inside a home holding the homeowner’s wallet and keys, according to police. He then fled in the woman’s Honda and crashed the car into a ditch a few miles away.

He left the vehicle and entered another home. There he allegedly demanded a ride from the homeowner. The victim took him to a McDonald’s drive-thru for a soft drink. Then he instructed the victim to drop him off at Rainier where police picked him up.

According to authorities he was high when he was arrested. He allegedly told police that he had a “bad trip” and black out for about a week. The only thing he said he could recall was the “nice man” who took him to the drive-thru.

Jacobson is being held in Pierce County Jail on $1 million bond.
