Stupid Case File for August 4, 2007

Pipe catches the crook ...

Courtesy of UPI

DENTON, Texas - A Texas burglary suspect was rescued by police after he got trapped in a storm-sewer pipe making his getaway, Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.

Denton police said it all started when they responded to a complaint about a home invasion on South Bell Street.

As police arrived on the scene, the suspect jumped out of a window and led police on a 10-minute foot chase before ducking down a drainage pipe on South Locust Street.

Officers waited for the suspect to come out but, when he didn't, called the city's water department to come dig a few holes in the pipe so they could get their man.

It wasn't until hours later that they were able to drag the suspect out from where he was trapped, 300 feet from where he had entered the pipe.

He was treated at Denton Regional Medical Center and released into police custody, a department spokesman said.

The man was in the Denton City jail late Tuesday facing a charge of evading arrest.

Maybe he thought the officers would leave if he didn't come out. Ha, yeah, right.

Maybe the burglar ate too many burgers and had not enough exercise.
