Justin James Cain of Arlington would have been better off on many levels if he'd just stayed in bed.
The 21-year-old was arrested early Wednesday after police say he got stuck in the chimney of the house he was trying to burglarize.
He was yelling for help when Arlington police arrived at the house on Glassboro Circle at about 1:47 a.m., Arlington police spokeswoman Tiara Richard said in this report in the Star-Telegram online.
He had to be cut out of the chimney by Arlington firefighters, Richard said.
Adding insult to injury, police also found a bag containing what they said was marijuana and drug paraphernalia in Cain's Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was parked nearby, according to the police report.
Details were still trickling in Wednesday. It wasn't clear how long Cain was stuck in the chimney or how he got up there in the first place. More is sure to come.
The homeowner where the burglary was reported had no comment.
A spokesman for the Arlington Fire Department was not available Wednesday afternoon.
Cain remains in custody at the Arlington Jail, according to jail records. His bail has been set at $11,500, jail records show.
