Belfast cops nab burglar caught in door letterbox

Thursday, March 01, 2012

Police say it wasn't too hard to nab one would-be Belfast burglar - he managed to get his arm stuck while trying to reach through a front door letterbox.

Northern Ireland police say a passing patrol spotted the 17-year-old wrestling to free himself from a house's front door before sunrise Thursday. They say he had tried to reach the door's inner lock via the letterbox flap but his arm became hopelessly trapped.

Firefighters dismantled the door but left the letterbox clamped to the boy's arm until they reached a police station, where it was safely removed.

Police declined to identify the boy because he has yet to be charged.
