Break-in suspect rescued from Ohio restaurant vent



Published: Wed, April 16, 2014 @ 3:35 p.m.

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — 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.

The Mansfield News Journal reports a subcontractor arrived at the Bob Evans in Mansfield as the alarm was sounding early Tuesday and spotted the suspect’s legs dangling from the ventilation system above the stove.

Police allege the 5-foot-7 inch, 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.

I wonder where they took him to remove all the grease from that vent?

Perhaps a carwash to be hosed down.

Nasty!

Suggest removal:

Poor guy couldn't wait for the doors to open for breakfast.
