Suspected burglar found naked in chimney

October 23, 2008


— British police say they found a naked burglary suspect trapped in the chimney of a supermarket in the northern English town of Pemberton.

Greater Manchester Police say officers found the 22-year-old man about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. The fire service was called to help extricate him.

A spokesman for the police says he "has no idea" how the man got into the chimney. He says that some of the man's clothes may have come off as he struggled to escape.

Police say the suspect was hospitalized as a precaution but has since been discharged and arrested.
