Help This guy got stuck trying to enter a business during a burglary!

They found this guy in the morning, he had been stuck all night long and the fire department had to pour liquid grease into the vent to get him out.

DENVER -- A 21-year-old burglary suspect was stuck in an air vent at a Blackjack Pizza restaurant for hours Friday morning before firefighters arrived to cut his clothes off and free him. The man was lodged in the small vent above the restaurant's oven. "I heard a scream, 'I can't breathe.' I shut off the alarm. I looked up and saw this leg," said Josh Guerin, a part-owner of the business who arrived at work at about 6:45 a.m. "He was in a lot of pain."

Video of the roof of the building, at 3535 N. Quebec St., showed a large ventilation fan had been removed from a vent. Firefighters called to the scene had to cut the vent opern and remove part of the ceiling, but the man was still suspended by his clothes, and wailing in pain. Firefighters cut him free from his jumpsuit and the suspected burglar landed completely naked -- pepperoni and all.


Firefighters said the man was taken to a local hospital to be checked out. He apparently suffered only minor cuts and abrasions, said Denver Fire spokesman Phil Champagne. Police identified the suspect as Andrew Baca, 21. He is being held for investigation of burglary and criminal mischief.

The man told police that he had been wedged in the 12-inch by 12-inch air duct for five hours before help arrived.


"He claimed that he got beat up, someone threw him on the roof and that's how he got stuck in there," Guerin said. Police spokesman Sonny Jackson said that doesn't sound plausible. A firefighter who helped in the rescue said the man was stopped by obstructions in the vent, including one that could have killed him. "The size of the hole was what, 16 by 16? I think he got enough speed that he hit a couple obstructions, and that's what doomed him. It was just a rod that stuck out and knocked the wind out of him and could have penetrated the abdomen area," said Denver firefighter Chad Kramer.


Jackson said the man was lucky an employee came in to work early and heard his cries for help and the oven didn't turn on automatically.

"He was fortunate. He could have asphyxiated. He could have died," Jackson said. Firefighters and officers had a few chuckles at the man's expense. "OK, it's funny," said one passerby, watching the rescue from outside the pizza shop. "I've never seen something so crazy before."

But Guerin said now that it's over he's ready to get back to the pizza-making business, but he doesn't know when he can reopen. There's a lot to replace. "Got to call the hood company, Ansul Systems, an electrician," Guerin said. "I think it's going to be expensive."

Friday is Guerin's busiest day but he can't open and his 10 employees won't be working.


"I'm pretty upset about it. I'm glad he got caught," Guerin said.

A man was arrested Thursday after he jumped into a vent above Ho Ho Chinese Food and was stuck for about two hours.

Albuquerque Police officers could not identify the man and did not know if he was injured from being lodged in a vent above the ovens in the restaurant's kitchen.

Mario Peralta, an employee of the UPS Store next to the restaurant, said he was working and heard someone running on the roof. Peralta said he ran outside and saw the man breaking the wood balcony above the UPS store. The man tried opening the balcony door, Peralta said.

"He wanted to know what was in there," Peralta said. "I told him it was locked because nothing was in there."

The man then told Peralta the building was architecturally unsafe and started to break pieces of the balcony.

The police officers were assisting a car accident when they saw the man on top of the Lobo Campus Center on the corner of Central Avenue and Yale Boulevard.

When police and firefighters arrived on the scene, the man pulled a camera out and started taking pictures, Peralta said. He then ran across the roof and jumped into a vent above the Chinese food restaurant, Peralta said.

Henry Lee, manager of Ho Ho Chinese Food, said he was cooking food and heard a loud bang followed by shouting above his oven.

"It's super hot in there (the vent), at least 120 degrees," Lee said. "I turned off everything. He would have died in there. That's crazy. I don't know why he went in there."

Police officers closed the center, and people formed a crowd to wait for the outcome.

UNM alumnus Walt Gill sat on the curb and ate his Chinese food while rescue teams tried to free the man. Gill said he was eating in the restaurant and heard someone banging and yelling for help.

"It's more funny than anything," Gill said.

Peralta said it is easy to climb up to the center's roof.

"There are some electrical boxes you can climb up if you wanted to - if you dared to," he said.

Once the man was freed from the vent, he was medically treated and will be sent to jail, said Lt. Lee Krebsbach, an Albuquerque Police officer.

Krebsbach said it is not unusual for someone to get stuck in a vent, but it usually happens at night during a burglary.

"Here we got some guy who went crazy and got stuck in a vent," he said.

Krebsbach said the man climbed out of the vent by himself and was disoriented.

More than likely the man will be charged with breaking and entering and criminal damage, Krebsbach said. The man damaged the roof and a parked car, he said.

Peralta said the situation did not surprise him.

"It's just another day here," he said.

Billy Jordan of Riverview says he feels stupid because he spent 10 hours stuck inside a commercial grill vent at the Lucky Buffet on U.S. 301 South in Hillsborough County.

Jordan, 45, says it was, "like a rat being in a tunnel," and that he'll never do such a thing again.

Manager Zhangjin Xu says an employee discovered Jordan's legs dangling from the vent when she arrived for work Friday morning.

"She was surprised and a little scared," said Xu. "She called out and asked for her son."

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue workers responded to a 911 call with a cherry picker and rope at about 10 a.m. They wrapped the rope snuggly around his waist and hoisted him up through the rooftop.




The vent Jordan was stuck in for 10 hours. Jordan claims he had been trying to help after seeing something suspicious on the roof. Investigators say otherwise.

"If he was intent on doing something legal, he would have used the front door when the business opened," said Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office spokesman J.D. Callaway.

Jordan was arrested and charged with burglary. His bond was set at $2,000.
