WATCH: Would-be thief gets stuck at crime scene

A thief in Russia was easily busted by police after hanging around the crime scene too long. He was literally hanging around.

This would-be criminal found himself in a tight spot in the town of Krasnoyarsk after he attempted to break in a store that sells alcohol.

Police officers arrived at the scene after an alarm went off and found a pair of legs dangling from the ceiling.

According to a police report, the 40-year old suspect, whose name was not given, tried to get into the shop through a hole in the roof but got stuck.

The man told the police he was not the first to climb into the shop.

No word on the whereabouts of any other suspects who allegedly decided to not “hang around.” provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
