Drop in anytime

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - November 3, 2010

That's what police might have said to a suspected crook.

Officers in Lexington, Kentucky, were searching for a man in a vacant house, when he fell through the ceiling.

Authorities say Charles Creech was hiding in a basement ceiling after a neighbor called police.

The drywall gave way and Creech fell to the floor.

A local paper reports a second man was caught running from the house.

Both now face charges, including burglary.

Police believe the men were looking for copper in the home.
