Would-Be Thief Gets Stuck For Days In Grease Trap
There’s a reason thieves “case the joint.”
A suspected burglar is finally freed after getting stuck in the grease trap of a restaurant for two days. The problem was the restaurant was sitting vacant! Police in San Lorenzo, California found the trespasser after getting reports of noises and a voice coming from the roof of a vacant Chinese restaurant.
The trespasser was found inside a rooftop grease vent covered by thick cooking oils. Firefighters managed to pull him out and he is in custody. They say he was not seriously injured, but is in need of a bath.
