Accused thief falls through ceiling hiding from police | KFOR.com
OKLAHOMA CITY – Two men are behind bars following an unusual home break invasion in Oklahoma City.
It happened over the weekend at a home near I-240 and May Ave.
One of the accused thieves tried to hide from police in the attic.
It started when the victim came home to find her house being ransacked.
“When I get here, I saw stuff all over the floor,” victim Shirley Cloud said.
Shirley said one of the suspects, Taylor Lane, hit her from behind and fled out the back door while a second suspect climbed up the stairs into her attic.
Officers showed up and, at first, didn’t find the suspect hiding. Thieves through ceiling
“They didn’t get up and walk a whole lot, they tried to rake,” Cloud said. ”You know, they just didn’t see anybody.”
“They did a search of the residence and were unable to find the suspects in the residence,” Oklahoma City police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said.
A short time later, hearing strange noises from the attic, Shirley once again called police.
That’s when officers found Nicholas Werner hiding out upstairs.
