Teenager trapped by letterbox becomes burglary suspect
Friday 02 March 2012
A teenager found with his arm stuck in the letterbox of a house has been arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary.
Fire crews had to remove the letterbox from the door to free the 17-year-old at the property in Dunmurry, near Belfast.
He was then taken to a police station in nearby Lisburn with the letterbox still wedged on to his hand, where it was eventually removed.
The youth was spotted by a passing police patrol at 4.10am yesterday. He remained in custody last night and was being questioned on suspicion of attempted burglary and other offences. Police are investigating several other possible attempted break-ins and a theft from a vehicle in the same area.
