Middle School Burglar Calls 911 While Stuck on Elevator
A 19-year-old Laurel, Delaware man who had just pulled off a robbery was caught by police after calling 911 himself Monday (Sep 7).
Michael Claude entered the school unlawfully that day and took some things. He was seen cruising the halls of the school on a buffing machine, then boarding the elevator. The elevator then got stuck, forcing Claude to eventually call 911, making his encounter with authorities inevitable.
A maintenance worker was able to fix the jam and open the doors, at which time Laurel was "found wearing a Laurel letterman jacket that did not belong to him," according to KX News.
Claude was arrested and handed charges of third-degree burglary, criminal mischief and theft; he was later released on a bond of $3,800.
