(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested and charged with illegal drugs related charges after he allegedly shot marijuana laced arrows into a prison, according to police reports in Washington.

A bow and arrow is one of the most innovative ways to try to smuggle drugs into prison.

While the ingenuity of his plan is to be commended, the excuse he gave police after being caught showed why he should consider a career change.

The Bellingham man, 36-year-old David Wayne Jordan, said he had been out hunting squirrels when he was seen firing his arrows into the prison.

“He had no explanation for why he used marijuana for squirrel hunting,” Whatcom County Sheriff Bill Elf said.

An employee of the sheriff’s office had seen the suspect outside of his truck and launching the arrows to the recreation area on the second floor of the jail, but the arrows did not reach its target.

He was arrested on charges of introducing contraband into jail, resisting arrest and obstruction of law.
