(Newser) – It probably seemed like the perfect plan on paper: Climb up on the roof of the local Arby's after it closed for the night, zip inside through the ventilation shaft, and then plunder the store's vast riches. Except police say a would-be burglar in South Carolina ended up stuck in that ventilation shaft for about 10 hours—until the morning crew opened up and heard him shouting for help, reports CarolinaLive. Rescuers had to cut him out of there, and he suffered dehydration and a possible broken arm. Laquain Deshawn Guy, 22, will face second-degree burglary charges as soon as he's out of the hospital. Advises the Consumerist: "Take that as a lesson, bad consumers: You are not in Mission: Impossible and the universe has its own way of dealing with you if you forget that fact."

That will just drive a steak through the heart of that crime.
