If only it was always this easy. Police arrive to find thief stuck in metal security bars

Morelia, Michoacán — A would-be thief who was trying to rob a home was caught by neighbors after he spent the night stuck in the metal security bars. The incident was captured on video by city of Morelia neighbors who called police after finding the man dangling by his head from the home’s roof.

It appeared that the man, who was thin, was able to lower his body between the mental security bars, however, his head posed a problem. After getting his body through the bars, his head became stuck. He spent the night dangling from the top of the cage, where he was discovered in the morning.

“It looks like when mice get caught in traps,” commented a woman who was videoing the stuck thief.

When police arrived, they helped the man free himself. Once out, he was arrested.
