A video has been released in Russia showing how a would-be-thief's plans to steal from a shop in Siberia was foiled after he became stuck in the roof.

Police in the Siberian town of Krasnoyarsk detained the 40-year-old unnamed resident on 22 December, after he tried to get into the shop, which mostly sells alcohol, through a hole in the roof but got stuck.

The police officers arrived at the scene after an alarm went off to find the suspect's legs dangling from the ceiling.

After filming the incident, police then freed the suspect. The man told the police he was not the first to climb into the shop. A criminal case has now been opened.
