Abuja - A burglar's operation was bungled yesterday after he accidentally got his head stuck between burglar-proof bars following his looting of a Jos shop, Punch has reported.
The suspect, identified as Solomon Clement, had entered the premises through the roof and proceeded to steal seven suits, two blankets, thirteen pairs of shoes and three sheets before his ill-fated meeting with the metal bars.

Abuh Emmanuel, PR Officer for the Plateau State Police, confirmed that investigations into the matter are ongoing.
