A Perth man has been left red-faced after police caught him with a marijuana pipe fashioned from a tomato sauce bottle.

Police in the west Australian city seized the condiment-turned-smoking implement and charged the man.

"We've arranged him to ketchup with a magistrate #saucy," Perth Police wrote on Twitter.

In the photograph of the 'bong' that police shared online, a pipe can be seen sticking from the side of the tomato sauce bottle. It's assumed one uses the twistable spout of the bottle to inhale.

"Seems he's been the sauce of a number of drugs complaints in the CBD," Perth Police said.
