    The Old 'Hiding In The Ceiling Panel' Trick

    HOUSTON - It's not often that a suspect falls into the hands of the cops -- literally. Police in the Houston suburb of Brookshire busted a would-be burglar at the B-and-B Supermarket. The suspect apparently hid in ceiling panels after the store closed, but he set off an alarm. Police were searching the store, when the guy came crashing through the ceiling. Police say he had pocketed some prescriptions from the store's pharmacy. Formal charges against the man are pending. (AP)
