Pittsburgh Police Say Macy's 'Burglar' Was Asleep


By Kelli Sutterman

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh police say a man who triggered a burglar alarm at a downtown department store didn't break into the store — he merely fell asleep in a restroom and didn't leave before the store closed.

Officers were responding to the alarm Thursday night when police got another call from the man who told them of his plight.

Police located the man who had been locked in the store and verified his story.

WPXI-TV in Pittsburgh says police didn't charge the man, so they're not releasing his identity.
