Crook caught in chimney
NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- Santa -- he's not. Police in Naples, Florida, report busting a suspect who got stuck in a chimney.
Officers say Richard Tyler Brandon intended to rob a home, after he ran out of money during a night of drinking. The Naples Daily News reports a friend told Brandon, "Dude, you're not Santa Claus, what are you doing." After Brandon got stuck, the friend went looking for help and found officers at a nearby gas station. It took firefighters two hours to get him out. Brandon is now charged with two counts of burglary. The friend faces accessory charges.
