Oh the beauty of stupidity. Not a day goes by that some dolt breaks the law and makes himself look like a total buffoon.

This burglar decided to break into a pizza parlor through an exit: the smoke vent. If you’ve ever walked behind a strip mall where there is a restaurant you know which unit houses the fry-o-lator, it’s the one that has globs of grease dripping down the side of the building via the vent.

Mr. Grease Monkey climbed inside the vent, got stuck, fell halfway through the duct, screamed for help and cops showed up and saw two dangling legs sticking out of the vent!

Police said he was extremely distraught and shouted for assistance. Firefighters took roughly 30 minutes to dislodge him.

The Times Union reports in “his mugshot, his face, white T-shirt and jeans were coated in grease and grime. The dumb criminal was on parole after being released from prison on Jan. 27, 2010. Records show he has served five previous prison stints for burglary or attempted burglary dating back to 1992.”

Sounds like he has a problem.

Officials say he did extensive damage to the duct and the fire suppression system. More than likely the damage done would equate to thousands of dollars in repairs and money lost due to the restaurants inability to serve their customers.

Often burglars do more damage in dollars to the home/business than they are able to steal.

Whether a commercial or residential installation a security system goes far to protect the premises. Home security alarms equipped with home security cameras, glass break sensors and signage is a great investment to protect your investment.

Hi, Vick.  This is a good one.  Criminal stupidity never ceases to amaze me.  Back home in Birmingham, we once had a similar incident with a guy that tried to break into a BBQ place via the smoker's chimney.  Didn't turn out too well for him- and as his smart self tried this on a holiday weekend, he found no sympathy from some hungry would-be patrons when he was finally pulled out of the thing.  Memo to future chimney-droppers:  Santa's one of a kind- your fat self had better stick to breaking in through doors and windows.

Crime doesn't pay.  Eventually you will caught, maybe not right away, but you will be caught.
