Bungling Burglar Falls Through Ceiling of Day Care Center, Steals From Children
London cops are asking for the public’s help in identifying a bungling burglar who crashed into a day care center.
Surveillance video shows the man, wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants dangling from the ceiling before plummeting to the floor, where he appears to writhe in pain, clutching his leg.
He allegedly made off with three Apple iPads after managing to get back on his feet, Metropolitan Police said in a statement posted to Twitter, along with the grainy footage.
The break-in occurred in April at the Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery in Lewisham, police said.
