30-year-old Amanda Chandler broke into a Big Lots in Springfield, Missouri around 2:00 A.M. last Thursday. She set off the alarm, so she tried to break into the register quickly before the cops showed up. They got there before she could get all the cash out.

When they shined a flashlight at her through the window she ran to the back of the store and managed to climb into the ceiling to hide. As she crawled around up there, the ceiling couldn't hold her and she crashed down into the women's bathroom.

The cops arrested her for burglary.
