Kyle McQuaid has had a variety of sleeping quarters of late.

McQuaid, 34, had been staying at his sister’s apartment in Stratford before being barred from the building due to complaints from tenants.

He returned June 9 to spend the night in the furnace room of the Glen Stewart Drive apartment building.

Police were called, and McQuaid was arrested.

His accommodations have been in the Provincial Correctional Facility since the arrest.

On Tuesday, he pleaded guilty to “interfering in the lawful use’’ of the furnace room.

He was sentenced to 45 days in jail but was credited with 33 days for time served on remand.
