KATHIE J'S STUPID NEWS - MAN TRIES TO ROB DEPARTMENT STORE BY LOWERING HIMSELF FROM THE CEILING...IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY!!
Posted 3/22/2013 5:39:00 AM

We've seen a bunch of stories where people try to pull off "Mission:  Impossible"-style heists by breaking into a store through the roof, and lowering themselves down.  But . . . um . . . usually they do it when the store is CLOSED.

47-year-old Paul Masters wanted to rob a department store called Roses, in Lexington, Kentucky.  His plan was to break in through the ceiling tiles and lower himself to the floor.  And he did that . . . at 1:00 P.M.

Right before he dropped down, employees heard him moving around in the ceiling, so they called the cops.  The cops came and waited until Paul dropped through, and when he did, they wrestled him to the ground and arrested him for burglary.

And the police agreed this was a pretty mediocre idea.  Quote, "This is very uncommon for . . . 1:00 in the afternoon.  This is typically the type of crime we would see in the early morning hours."
