Thief Injured Attempting To Steal Copper Wire From School
December 16, 2011 6:34 PM
MIAMI GARDENS (CBS4) A thief apparently looking to steal copper from
equipment on the roof of a Miami-Dade school fell more than two stories,
a debilitating plunge that left him unable to walk, apparently with a
broken hip or leg.
The hapless Spiderman was captured by security cameras at Charles Wyche
Elementary School in Miami Gardens. He arrives, wearing a ski mask, and
begins to arrange ropes hes carrying for a climb up the outside wall of
the school to the roof, more than two stories above. Moments later a
second camera angle shows the man falling to the ground a drop of more
than 25 feet where he begins to writhe in pain. The intruder dragged
himself out on to a walkway and attempted to stand up, but immediately
fell back down. He then dragged himself on his belly out of the school,
pushing a pair of bolt cutters in front of him.
