Burglar Tried to Hide in 7-Eleven Ceiling, Police Say (WATCH)


Police in Santa Ana, California say a burglar broke into several apartments, then attempted to escape–into a 7-Eleven. Employees called authorities late Thursday night because the man locked himself inside the break room, according to a KABC report.

Cops arrived, and discovered that the suspect had climbed into the ceiling. This hiding spot apparently wasn’t the best because police say he knocked¬†through some ceiling titles.

Video from OnScene.TV shows the suspect, who remains unidentified, climbing down while wearing shorts and a tank top. An officer yanked him by the arm all the way to the ground, where he was apprehended.
