When a would-be burglar was caught stuck in a store's ventilation system, he's got a handy excuse: he was playing hide and seek!
Deputies said Hall had removed the ventilation cover, crawled through the vent, got stuck and set off a fire extinguisher that sprayed powder all over the store, Chiominto said. [...]
Hall told deputies he was playing hide and seek on the roof with some other adults and decided to hide in the ventilation system.
When no one guessed where he was, the other players gave up looking, Hall told police.
