LONDON–British police say they found a naked burglary suspect trapped in the chimney of a supermarket in the northern English town of Pemberton.

Greater Manchester Police say officers found the 22-year-old man at around 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The fire service was called to help extricate him.

A spokesman for the police says he “has no idea” how the man got into the chimney. He says that some of the man’s clothes may have come off as he struggled to escape.

He spoke on condition of anonymity in line with force policy.

Police say the suspect was hospitalized as a precaution but has since been discharged and arrested.

And to think, this happened at a Tesco Express in Pemberton in the Greater Manchester Area. Looks like Manchester is known for kooky burglars and Coronation Street. I must visit this fascinating place, yes indeedy.
