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.
