Suspected burglar falls through ceiling

HOUSTON -- Authorities say a man's plans to break into a store fell through after he crashed through the ceiling and landed in front of police. Houston police say the man climbed a tree and onto the roof of a Family Dollar store early Sunday morning, then managed to break a hole in the roof and enter the building. But after making his way into the store, the man fell through the ceiling just as a police officer arrived in response to a call about a potential burglary. The man was later arrested. Authorities believe he was trying to steal cigarettes.
