TULSA, Oklahoma -- Police are looking for a would-be burglar who may be very sore after falling through a ceiling at a Mazzios restaurant.

Tulsa Police responded to an alarm at the business at 51st and Union around 1:00 a.m. Sunday.

When police arrived, they discovered that someone had broken into the restaurant through a small air vent on the roof and fell through the sub-ceiling.

Police say the suspect likely set off the alarm when the person fell from the ceiling.  The suspect then fled out the back door empty-handed.

The suspect left behind a large hole on the restaurant's ceiling and damaged fixtures.

Police believe the suspect reached the small opening on the roof by using a utility box to climb up the back wall.

If you have any information on this crime you are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
