Police say an Ohio man suspected of breaking into a restaurant overnight became stuck in a ventilation duct, triggered a fire alarm and had to be rescued by emergency responders.
Police allege the 5-foot-7, 155-pound man had climbed onto the roof and tried entering through the vent system but got stuck. Firefighters threw him a rope to secure around his wrists and pulled him back up through the ventilation shaft.
The suspect, 47-year-old John Edmonds of Mansfield, is charged with breaking and entering and having criminal tools. Court records listed no attorney for him Wednesday.
