Tulsa Burglar Gets Stuck In Chimney

In one of the most ill-planned robberies in history, a Tulsa man has been arrested on a burglary charge after firefighter rescued him from the chimney of an Auto Center business. Police say that between midnight and 1 a.m. Monday, 23-year old Keenan Holmes broke into Floyd & Son’s Body Shop west of Durango Auto Center and used power tools to cut wiring at the business before moving down the street and climbing on top of the Durango business.

Tulsa World News reports:

Once on top of the building, Holmes reportedly dropped down the chimney, leaving a power saw on the roof. He then became stuck and stayed there until employees arrived later in the morning to hear him moaning. Firefighters used pulleys to lift him out of the chimney. He reportedly was taken to a hospital and then was booked into the Tulsa County jail about 1 p.m.

Holmes, who has prior convictions for burglary and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, was arrested for complaints of second-degree burglary, malicious injury to property, possession of burglary tools and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is currently with a $6,000 bond.
