Accidentally getting locked in a store for the night can be pretty frightening. But a burglar getting locked in a store for the night after trying to rob it is pretty hilarious! That's what happened recently at a California business.

A man broke into a cellphone store through a ventilation duct. But as soon as he was in, the moron noticed that the store was empty because it hadn't opened yet. He tried to make his escape through what looked like an exit. What he walked into was a holding cell that the owners had installed after dealing with theft for years.

After struggling for an hour to free himself from the hot, humid room with no luck, he gave up and submitted to police on arrival.
