Instant Karma: Burglar Forced To Call 911 After Getting Stuck In Chimney
I know this guy felt some fast regret.
A would be robber had a tough choice to make after he got stuck in a chimney while trying to break into a home.
A man in Northern California tried to rip off a business by shimmying down the building's chimney, but failed miserably when he became stuck and had to call 911 for assistance, cops said.
Police in Citrus Heights, a city near Sacramento, said that 32-year-old Jesse Berube was not harmed in his attempted Santa-style breaking and entering, ABC News reported. But he is facing one count of burglary.
The officers said that Berube tried to slide down the chimney of the business on Wednesday evening and found himself stuck somewhere along the narrow passageway. The soot-covered burglar was able to reach for his cell phone and used it to dial 911 for help getting back out.
Berube was described by the police on the scene as a "criminal Santa (who) does not have the same skills as the real deal." -(Ariel Scotti, NY Daily News)
