    HOUSTON - A Houston man found asleep with a corpse inside a closet of a vacant home has been charged with misdemeanor drug offenses 2.gif , authorities said Monday.
    Cody Jean Plant, 21, was discovered Sunday after the owner of the house reported hearing voices and seeing signs of forced entry at the home in Cypress, about 25 miles northwest of Houston, according to a Harris County Precinct 4 Constable official.
    Authorities did not immediately release the dead man's identity."There were two guys in the closet. They appeared to be sleeping, one was snoring and the other was deceased," said Assistant Chief Deputy Mark Herman. "It appeared that they were doing some sort of narcotics, at least the one that they woke up."
    Plant was charged with one count of possession of a dangerous drug and two counts of possession of a controlled substance 2.gif of more than three grams and less than 28 grams. All are punishable by up to a year in jail. It was not immediately clear what kind of drugs Plant allegedly had in his possession.
    Plant also had been charged with abuse of a corpse after prosecutors alleged he treated the body "in an offensive manner," but that charge was dropped Monday during a probable cause hearing.
    Plant remained in the Harris County Jail in lieu of $15,000 bail Monday. Jail officials did not know Monday night whether Plant had an attorney.

    Is the economy that bad that he could only afford to hang out with dead friends?

    Cleaning the closets can be bothersome too.
