NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (AP) - A would-be burglar who tried to break into a South Carolina restaurant found himself in a tight and a greasy situation.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports a man tried to break into a North Charleston restaurant by climbing down a grease vent. He got stuck and had to wait almost seven hours until he could be freed.
North Charleston Police said the man was discovered shortly before 5 a.m. Monday when an employee heard someone calling for help. Police arrived to find a foot dangling in a vent above a stove.
Kevin Michael Harley of North Charleston is charged with second-degree burglary. It could not immediately be determined if the 23-year-old Harley had an attorney.
