SAO PAULO (AP) -- When you fall asleep in a dumpster, you may wind up at the dump.

Brazilian police say that's what happened to a man discovered at a landfill on Christmas day in the southern city of Caxias do Sul.

A police officer in the city said Friday it's not clear why Augusto Cesar da Silva was in the dumpster to begin with, though he does face drug trafficking and robbery charges.

The officer says Silva "started screaming for help after he was dumped at the landfill and when we checked his identity we saw that he was wanted by police." He was taken into custody. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press.
