Houston police nab suspect in air conditioner

The Associated Press

HOUSTON- A burglary suspect tried something very uncool, trying to hide in an air conditioning unit at a Houston shopping center on Monday.

At first, officers who responded to the burglar alarm couldn't find anyone. But, they later noticed the man atop the building and summoned a ladder truck.

Officer John Dickerson said the suspect was nabbed inside an air conditioning unit. Copper wire was stripped from several other industrial AC units at the complex.

Charges are pending.
