Burglary Suspect Hurt Jumping from Window

WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) - Black Hawk County authorities say a burglary suspect has been injured in a leap from a building at the county landfill.

The sheriff’s department says deputies responded to a burglar alarm at the landfill’s maintenance building early Thursday morning. The deputies found a stolen pickup outside the building and inside found items stacked on a floor next to an exit.

They soon determined that someone was in an upstairs room. The department says that, as the deputies closed in, the man inside the room leaped through a window and down 10 to 15 feet onto a concrete floor.

The man has been taken to a hospital in Iowa City. The department says he likely will face a burglary charge when he leaves the hospital.
