(CBS) Lawrence, Mass. - If you're planning to do heroin at police headquarters, you probably shouldn't take up two spaces in their parking lot.

That's apparently how a couple of men from Nashua, N.H. got caught trying to use heroin Monday outside the police station in Lawrence, Mass, CBS Boston reported.

Ilyass Nabih and Thony Sengsoulya were arrested in a restricted parking area right outside the police station.

"The officer observed a vehicle parked in a police parking spot, which is restricted area for police vehicles only and the car was actually at an angle where it was taking up a couple of spots," Lawrence Police Chief John Romero said, according to CBS Boston.

The officer who approached the haphazardly parked vehicle witnessed what he called attempted drug use.

"As he approached the window he observed the individuals appear to be using drugs and then he opened the door to an individual who was about to shoot up heroin," explained Romero.

The men acknowledged their mistake - well, that's something - but they're now facing heroin related charges.

"His answer to the officer was just something to the effect of 'I'm stupid,'" said Romero of one suspect.
