A 37-year-old Briton, who was attempting to rob a fashion store in the calle San Nicolas in Palma, had to be rescued yesterday morning because he was trapped in the shop's air-conditioning duct.

The alarm at the shop went off around five o'clock. A National Police patrol went to the premises and officers discovered the robber in the duct. He had hidden himself there when the alarm went off. The police had to call the fire brigade in order to release him. He was taken to Son Espases Hospital with minor injuries and will be making a statement to police when he leaves hospital.

How very fitting that he was caught like a rat in a trap.

I think he’s totally innocent and went to fix the A/C at the shop but turned up at 5am instead of 5pm!!

He just got sucked into this way of life?

Hearing the comments made by the police, it seems that it’s not the first time he has been caught red handed.
