(Newser) – A man rescued from an oven vent at a western new York pizzeria is now facing burglary charges, the AP reports. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrived at Pontillo's Pizzeria in suburban Rochester at 3:45am Friday after someone reported a man yelling for help. They found 53-year-old Richard Graham stuck in ductwork that led from an oven to a roof vent.

After Penfield firefighters pulled him out, Graham was checked out at a hospital before being arraigned in town court on burglary and criminal mischief charges. The sheriff's office says Graham caused over $2,000 in damage to the restaurant. Graham was sent to the county jail without bail because he's considered a repeat offender.
