Dumb Burglar Stuck in Chimney.

If you're trying to break into a convenience store, don't go through the ceiling:

"We all think back to Christmas and Santa Claus coming down the chimney. It doesn't work that way," said Assistant Chief Greg Hoggart, Orlando Fire Department. The man may be thinner than Santa Claus, though he's not quite as skillful.

The suspect was identified as 37-year-old Lonnie Shields. Firefighters think he may have been stuck for six hours. He's being treated for minor injuries at Orlando Regional Medical Center, after which he'll be charged with commercial burglary.
