Georgia: Teens arrested after ceiling falls

Police said they nabbed two teenagers suspected of burglary after they crashed through the ceiling into two apartment units in Clayton County.

Authorities told WSB-TV that the teens, age 17 and 18, face charges of burglary and obstruction of an officer. They were arrested Monday at the apartments on Castlegate Road near College Park.

Clayton County police said the teens had gotten inside the apartments and stacked two televisions and other items by the door. Police said they were called to the complex during that time, and the teens scurried into the attic when officers arrived. Police say they were apprehended after they fell through the ceiling.
