Man burgles home, hides under nearby car
A Fridley family is safe after they escaped their home as someone was trying to break in. The break-in happened around 5 a.m. Thursday and the family ran to a neighbor's home to call police.
A short time later, police found a 28-year-old man hiding under a parked car just down the street. Excellent hiding spot, man. Next time we recommend at least getting into a different neighborhood before you crawl under a car. Or it might just make sense to escape the city altogether.
Fridley police are expected to file first-degree burglary charges against the man.
