PICO RIVERA (AP) — A man fell through the ceiling of a Pico Rivera shop on Saturday, landing in the arms of sheriffs who were searching for the suspected burglar of three businesses.

The Whittier Daily News reports that 23-year-old Jose Parada has been booked on suspicion of burglary after Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies responded to a burglar alarm at William’s Boots at 7 a.m.

County sheriff Sgt. Debbie Gallego says a responding deputy saw someone inside nearby De La Cruz Jewelry, and called in a K-9 unit for a search.

Deputies sprayed pepper spray into the attic of the store shortly before Parada fell through the ceiling. A nearby antique store was also burglarized.

Parada is being held in lieu of $20,5000 bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday.

    Watch. The SOB will sue the Jewelry store for having an inadequate ceiling. He’ll pay a $200 fine for burglary and get a $25M award for pain and suffering. Watch.

    ur right….lol, just like the family of the man who got shot by the officers. He tried hurting 3 innocent ladies one which was pregnant and then went towards a officer with a knife. He was wrong for doing all that but his family that all of a sudden loves him will sue the LAPD. i know its a diiferent topic but similar in the sueing part
